Geography is led by Mr Swift.

At Bovingdon Primary Academy, we aim to ensure that all children appreciate their locality in comparison with the wider world. The children learn about a range of different human and physical features in the world around them. We have made geography fun by exploring our local environment, researching different countries and role-playing lives in different countries. Our geography topics include: Tanzania, Bovingdon, India, London, natural disasters, mapping and many more. I am delighted to be able lead geography and see how the children’s knowledge and appreciation of the world develops and grows.
