Uplands Primary School


'The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.'

Barack Obama

Our local environment 

Throughout the year, each class has the opportunity to visit the outdoor classroom at the Hawkwood site. We observe the physical features of the area and create sketch maps of the local surroundings. 

End of Unit Outcomes

We have mapped out our geography curriculum to ensure the units build on previously learnt knowledge.  We also encourage our children to make connections between places and compare them by looking at the similarities and differences.  Below we have set out our end of unit outcomes for each year group, the key vocabulary they will learn in each unit and the key learning points that we want each child to retain from each unit.
