Geography at Battle Primary Academy reaches far beyond learning how to read a map or use an atlas, it helps us embrace different cultures from around the world and become open-minded learners. Geography equips us with the knowledge to make connections between human and physical aspects of the world, deepening our understanding of our planet. As geographers at Battle Primary Academy, we are curious to keep exploring the wider world through a variety of learning experiences, as we become caring global citizens working towards a sustainable future. 


At Battle Primary Academy we aim to engage all children with an enthusiasm and care for the planet on which we live.

To have a good understanding and awareness of the local area.

To use a map to locate and name continents and countries around the world.

To understand the relationship between human and physical geography, and their impact on the world.

That children will develop a range of geographical skills through class based tasks and fieldwork sessions.

To understand the importance of current environmental issues and possible solutions to these.

That, where possible, cross curricular links are made to other subjects.

To explore and embrace the diversity of different cultures.
