Stechford Primary School


At Stechford Primary School, we aim to inspire pupils to become curious and explorative thinkers with a diverse knowledge of the world; in other words, to think like a geographer. We want pupils to develop the confidence to question and observes places, measure and record necessary data in various ways, and analyse and present their findings. Through the Kapow scheme of work, we aim to build awareness of how Geography shapes our lives at multiple scales over time. We hope to encourage pupils to become resourceful, active citizens who will have the skills to contribute to and improve the world around them.

The Kapow scheme encourages:

  • A strong focus on developing both geographical skills and knowledge.
  • Critical thinking, with the ability to ask perceptive questions and explain and analyse evidence.
  • The development of fieldwork skills across each year group, with many opportunities to visit and explore the local area of Birmingham.
  • A deep interest and knowledge of pupils’ locality and how it differs from other areas of the world.
  • A growing understanding of geographical terms and vocabulary.
  • Through use of the Kapow scheme of work, pupils are supported in reaching the end of key stage attainment targets in the National Curriculum.



In EYFS, geography is taught through the specific area of learning and development; Understanding the World. This is delivered through exploration and child-initiated play.
