What does Geography look like at Middlezoy and Othery Schools?

Geography lessons are taught weekly, either for a whole term or half-term and are alternated with History. The Geography topics are taught in a two-year cycle and the intent is that the children will learn about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, and that they will build and deepen this knowledge over time. When completing fieldwork, the children may venture out around the local area, taking observations, photographs and sketches where appropriate. In class, the children have access to a range of fiction and non-fiction books linked to their current topic and will often use maps and atlases as part of their lessons.


Our curriculum ensures that, throughout their time with us, our Geographers have: 


  • An excellent understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected and how much human and physical environments are interrelated   

  • An extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary   

  • Fluency in complex, geographical enquiry and the ability to apply questioning skills and use effective analytical and presentational techniques    

  • The ability to reach clear conclusions and develop a reasoned argument to explain findings   

  • Significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity as shown in interpretations and representations of the subject matter   

  • Highly developed and frequently utilised fieldwork and other geographical skills and techniques

  • The ability to express well-balanced opinions, rooted in very good knowledge and understanding about current and contemporary issues in society and the environment.
