'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
What our children say...
Year 6 Geography Ambassadors 2023-24
Hello, we are the Geography Ambassadors – Mason, Joey and Amber. We have such a passion for geography and especially love learning about how the Earth is formed, different countries as well as historical geography. In geography, we learn lots of different things, including different land formations, countries and their flags, biomes across the world and food production. We also delve into important and current issues such as climate change, pollution and food waste. Throughout our time at Coxhoe Primary we learn many geographical skills such as field work, using atlases and understanding our role as global citizens. In Year 6, we are currently learning about glacial erosion and mountain formations – it rocks! Geography gives us the opportunity to explore our local environment and investigate outside of the classroom. Our geography curriculum is out of this world!
"I like that you can explore places without going there." - Year 4
"Geography helps you to know where you are in the world." - Year 3
"It's fun to use maps. I like it when we learn capital cities." - Year 2
Geography Subject Ambassadors 2023/2024
The intention of the Geography Curriculum at Coxhoe Primary School is to inspire children’s curiosity and interest to explore the world that we live in and its people, which aims to ignite a love of learning. We intend to equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. Through our teaching, we intend to provoke thought, questions and to encourage children to discover answers to their own questions through exploration and research to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.

To develop confident geographers at Coxhoe Primary School a discrete geography lesson is taught for one hour a week or two hours every two weeks. Each term will focus on a different aspect of Geography, continuously developing geographical skills and fieldwork.
