We're working hard as a team, together with our parents and families, to raise school attendance - it's gone up from 89.7% at the start of the year to 94.2% this week! Well done, but let's keep working together to raise it even higher!!


Geography At King Richard III


Our new and exciting Geography curriculum is designed to engage and activate children’s curiosity about the world in which we live and the people who inhabit it. In Nursery, the children focus on their immediate surroundings and relationships in school, then F2 build on this to learn about the unique diversity of our local community, and different groups of people who help us. In Year 1, children expand their focus to the United Kingdom and the different human and physical geography within it. Finally Year 2 start to look at the whole world, learning about the seven continents, the five oceans and an in-depth study of Kenya. All year groups also take part in Forest School sessions, where they can apply many of their geographical skills.


We aim to make Geography active and meaningful by regularly taking children around our city and helping them develop life-long skills such as map reading and fieldwork, using them in real-life contexts. By the time children leave our school, we hope they have a passion for exploring the outdoor world, an understanding of different cultures both within our country and others, and have transferable skills to use throughout their life.
