Striving for





Our World

At Listerdale Junior Academy we believe that Geography should help to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, its interconnectedness and their place in it. The geography curriculum at Listerdale enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can be used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Geography Overview

At Listerdale, we believe that Geography is an investigative subject which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. The curriculum is designed to ensure that teaching equips 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 through school, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for the next stage of their learning.


The units are mapped against progression documents in line with the National Curriculum to ensure that learners develop detailed knowledge and skills across the full breadth of the Geography curriculum through engaging and age-appropriate curriculum content.
