At Olga Primary School we aim to inspire our pupils with a curiosity about the world and its people. We aim to provide our children with the opportunities to become global citizens, deepening their interest and wonder by exploring and understanding their position in a global setting. Our curriculum is designed to develop children’s understanding about people (human), places (locational; place) and the environment (physical) and how this impacts their lives and the world. The children are encouraged to develop a sense of their world at a local, national and global scale; understanding how people and the environment connect and interact. We take into account the different cultural heritages of our children, ensuring we provide children the study of their own personal geographies and experiences within lessons.



At Olga Primary School, we follow the National Curriculum for Geography; we have a bespoke curriculum that is tailored to the area our children are growing up in. This takes the children’s heritages and backgrounds into consideration and we aim to open the areas of the world to them that they may not know much about. Each year group does three Geography topics within the academic year. They do an hour each week for three half terms of the academic year. Each class will go on a few educational visits per year and these are often linked to the Geography curriculum. This brings their learning alive and makes use of the incredible opportunities we have living in London.

We show progression throughout the school, building upon the knowledge we acquire year on year. At Olga, Children start the unit and every lesson off with recapping prior learning within the unit and previous year. This helps to ensure new learning is built upon children’s existing knowledge.



Our Geography Curriculum at Olga focusses on progression of knowledge and skills throughout the key stages. The impact is measured using the following methods.

Continuous discussion with children about their learning. 
Questioning and feedback in lesson 
End of unit assessment tasks and outcomes
Images and videos of practical work 
Book scrutiny and pupil voice 
Learning walks
