Intent, Implementation and Impact


At Crook Log Primary School, the intent of our inclusive Geography curriculum is to provoke curiosity and fascination about the world and encourage pupils to ask and answer questions through investigative and explorative means. We ensure that geographical concepts, knowledge and skills are developed progressively and are revisited and built upon. 

A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.


At Crook Log, we implement this by:

Delivering a high quality, engaging Geography curriculum which enables all children to know, understand and apply key Geographical skills.

  • Ensuring that these skills are built upon and revisited regularly so that children reflect upon previous learning and build upon skills throughout both key stages.
  • Children in Years 1 - 6 are taught 3 Geography topics a year. These are taught alternatively to History topics, although cross curricular links are regularly made with other subjects.
  • At the start of a topic the children are asked to record what they already know.
  • Where possible, teachers deliver lessons that make the most of our amazing outside space and ensure children have first-hand experience asking and answering questions through fieldwork topics.  We use PlanBee, Hamilton and Twinkl resources to support our lessons, work is differentiated to suit all needs.
  • At the end of each topic, children have the opportunity to reflect on what they have found out, this is recorded record in their books.


The main impact of this is to ensure children make good or better progress and that they learn skills that will help them in the wider world beyond primary school. It is also that children have enjoyable and memorable learning experiences that foster a love of learning about Geography.

Our engaging and stimulating curriculum will have a positive impact on all pupils’ learning across the years and they will have a good basis of core geographical knowledge and vocabulary. Geography teaching is evaluated through staff audits, lesson observations, pupil voice and work scrutinies. Alongside this, the Geography leader produces an action plan to address areas for improvement to continue to develop the subject.
