Riverside Academy Geography Intent

At Riverside Academy we provide a geography curriculum which ensures that all children are provided with challenging and memorable learning opportunities which raises aspirations and allows them to become confident geographers.

We aim for children to have secure fieldwork skills to allow them to gain knowledge about our local area and the wider world.

Through our geography curriculum, the children express well-balanced opinions based on their acquired knowledge and understanding about current issues in society and the environment.

We immerse the children in rich and varied geographical subject vocabulary so that our children can understand and communicate in geography confidently.  

Our children develop their own understanding of the world by using reading as a driver to explore human and physical geography – including the impact of how human activity affects or is influenced by the earth’s surface.
