Outcomes in topic and literacy books, evidence a broad and balanced geography curriculum and demonstrate children’s acquisition of identified key knowledge. Children review their successes towards achieving the lesson objectives at the end of every session. Pupils assess what they know at the start of a topic and what they have learned by the end using strategies such as mind mapping.  As children progress throughout the school, they develop a deep knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their local area and its place within the wider geographical context.
