Humanities is the driver and the context of our bespoke curriculum at Rothwell St. Mary’s.
Children learn Geography through first-hand experiences in real-life settings! Geography is challenging, motivating, topical, and fun. In our diverse society children need, more than ever before, to understand other people and cultures. Geography makes a major contribution to children’s physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development. In short, geography matters!
Our high-quality geography education at St Mary’s aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about Rothwell, Leeds, Yorkshire, and the people who live there as well as people and places beyond. We aim for this knowledge to remain with them for the rest of their lives.


Where will you find evidence of our pupil’s work for each curriculum area?

In most classes, work can be found in pupil’s books for the subject. In our older classes in Key Stage 2, some evidence of learning can be found on Chrome Books. Pupils in Years 3-6 are fortunate enough to have their own Chrome Books.
