Howletch Lane
Primary School


At Howletch Primary School we incorporate Geography into our topic themed learning, therefore children are immersed into the subject using a variety of practical and cross-curricular learning opportunities, to enable children to make sense of their learning in context. Aspects of Geography are implemented and developed through a spiral curriculum, where children revisit and expand their skills in a progressive and reactive way focussed on building upon children’s prior knowledge, learning experiences and understanding of the environment. This subject is also taught in reference to the context in which Howletch’s children live and play; these independent elements of geography relating to locality are touched upon throughout the year. Due to our school’s location, learners can investigate and explore a wide range of concepts that can be applied within their local area and this also offers a wealth of fieldwork opportunities.  


We are mindful that knowledge does not sit as isolated information in children’s minds hence, our curriculum has been devised in the interests of our children to ensure quality of provision to enable them to acquire and develop a deep body of knowledge. At Howletch we provide unique opportunities for children to explore the diverse environments within our locality and further afield. We encourage a wide use of ICT resources to explore countries and lifestyles that differ to our own. Further to this, we invite local experts and professionals into school, to enrich children’s learning and to highlight the importance of geographical concepts in the real world. 


We encourage children to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding as set out by the National Curriculum which is the backbone to our sequencing and content of the curriculum with the focus throughout on the four principal areas.
