Geography – curriculum information
Throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 in geography, pupils will be involved in investigation a variety of places and environments both locally, with in the United Kingdom and also in a global context. Geographical knowledge and skills will be taught ensuring that children progress through the big ideas of place, space and scale, the environment and interactions.
Geographical enquiry is undertaken inside and outside of the classroom and pupils are taught key skills such as; observing and recording, asking geographical questions, analysing evidence and drawing conclusions. These will be used to promote awareness of local, national and global environmental issues.
Pupils learn about vocabulary specific to the subject, the use of globes, maps and plans at a range of scales, fieldwork techniques and instruments, and the use of secondary sources of information including aerial photographs.
Local visits and field trips will be promoted and will be used to provide deeper learning opportunities for the children, enabling them to apply the knowledge they have gained.
