Geography overview and progression

A geographer at Grove

Geography is all about inspiring our children to develop a fascination with the world and the world within it.   At Grove School our aim is to develop the children’s substantive knowledge and disciplinary skills commencing with an understanding of their school building, Handsworth, Birmingham; contrasting localities in the West Midlands, the United Kingdom and the world coupled with first-hand experiences and fieldwork to support the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding of place, space and scale.

Our pupils learn carefully chosen geographical vocabulary related to both human features (buildings, landmarks) and physical features (rivers, mountains, seas) of the world around them and learn geographical skills to enhance their location awareness and place knowledge.

A geographer a Grove will develop a real appreciation of the complexity and diversity of the world.
