The Geography curriculum at Roach Vale Primary School aims to develop all children's love of learning and curiosity about the world around them, both the wider world and their local environment.  

The UK theme runs throughout the curriculum.  Our pupils will experience a creative, broad, and balanced curriculum which will equip them with a deepening knowledge and understanding of diverse places and cultures, as well as natural and human environments, while always comparing and contrasting this learning with their own personal experiences.   

The children will become increasingly adept at locating different places using maps and globes, as well as understanding a broad range of geographical vocabulary and being able to confidently use this vocabulary in discussions and in their work.  This learning will be enriched through engaging and inspiring books (in line with our vocabulary rich curriculum to help pupils develop their vocabulary and love for learning.
