Welcome back to school everybody.....


Geography engages pupils in their world, springs them into action and creates conscientious and practical thinkers.

It’s also lots of fun!

 Learning about geography is vital for children, regardless of their stage of learning. Geography helps children to make sense of the world around them. It taps into their natural curiosity. It answers questions and prompts new ones. Geography helps us to better understand our worlds people, places and environments, and the interactions between them. Geography also deals with the 'here and 'now', enhancing the wider curriculum and helping prepare children for ‘real life’.

Geography Lead

Geography has always been one of my favourite subjects to teach. I absolutely love the interest and excitement the children get out of the subject. Geography engages pupils in their world and I find the children at Dale Hall to be so curious, full of questions and keen to learn. I love how Geography is always relevant to the learning. It provides context and understanding to our subjects and stories and springs children in to action and helps us to create conscientious and practical thinkers.

As subject lead, I hope my passion for this immersive subject is infectious and all children at Dale Hall can appreciate how great Geography is!

Our Vision

At Dale Hall, our core principles for Geography are focused around giving our children a rich and varied set of skills, enabling them to have an in-depth understanding of the wider world and their local area.

In a world where environmental impact is taking high precedent, we are aiming to develop culturally savvy pupils who care and understand their planet. As always with Dale Hall, we intend to embed Geography into a cross-curricular approach. Often taught inline with our Power of Reading texts, our Geography is offered in an investigative and immersive manner always creating an enjoyable learning experience for the children.


At Dale Hall, we aim to:

-         Develop knowledge and appreciation for a broad range geographical and culturally significant areas.

-         Understand the processes associated with key physical and human geographical features of the world

-         Develop competence in the geographical skills needed to collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork

-         Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs

-         Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length
