Our Lady Queen of Martyrs RC Primary School

Living, Loving, Learning - Christ at the Centre





At Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, we believe that the teaching of geography inspires a curiosity and fascination with the world, with diverse groups of people and how these interact with one another. Geography helps pupils to know their place in, and how to impact, the world. 




At OLQM, Geography is primarily delivered through our Quest curriculum. 

Quest is based on four principles: QUestions, Experiences, Skills and Total (holistic). You can find out more about it here.


Twice a year Geography’ is the driver subject and predominant focus of each class’ Quest. Although, the teaching of geography, geographical processes and changes permeate through a wide range of work across the curriculum.




We enhance our teaching of geography through a range of educational experiences: such as trips to local points of interest; having experts visit classes and extracurricular activities.



We value the subject-specific skills, knowledge and vocabulary of Geography. Therefore, we have also created a progressive set of skills that children will develop while at OLQM. 


These fall under five different strands and are listed below:

  • Geographical Enquiry
  • Direction and Scale
  • Map Knowledge
  • Using Maps
  • Drawing Maps
