Palmarsh Primary School

More Than A School


'A high quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.'



At Palmarsh Primary School we follow the Kapow Primary Geography scheme of work, which aims to inspire pupils to become curious and explorative thinkers with a diverse knowledge of the world; in other words, to encourage children to become Active Global Citizens. We want pupils to develop the confidence to question and observe places, measure, and record necessary data in various ways, and analyse and present their findings. Through our scheme of work, we aim to build an awareness of how Geography shapes our lives at multiple scales and over time. At our school, we want to nurture caring, compassionate, curious and conscientious pupils, who will be sustainable in their mindset to contribute to and improve the world around them. For EYFS, the activities set up by their teachers allow pupils to work towards the ‘Understanding the world’ Development matters statements and Early learning goals, while also covering foundational knowledge that will support them in their further geography learning in Key stage 1.

The Geography scheme of work covers the four types of Geographical knowledge:


●Substantive knowledge (‘knowing about’).

●Geographical concepts

● Disciplinary knowledge (‘ways of knowing’)

● Procedural knowledge (‘knowing how to’)
