At Rushden Primary Academy we use Focus Education to ensure pupils are taught high quality lessons covering the National Curriculum. The topics covered can be seen in the table below, during a Geography term the children are taught their topic in 1-hour lessons each week. 

Each topic will have a knowledge mat showing both students and teachers the key features within the topic. Here is an example of a year 2 mat:

During Geography topics, we use sticky words, which are displayed on curriculum boards. These words allow children to develop rich vocabulary and learn the key terms within their topic. The progression of vocabulary can be found in the documents at the bottom of this page.
