Our Geography curriculum is designed to inspire children's curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our pupils will be equipped with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earths key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earths features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
Key Stage One
In line with National Curriculum guidance, at key Stage 1, children should develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They should understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical Geography and begin to use Geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.
Key Stage Two
At Key Stage 2, children should extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, north and South America. This will include the location and characteristics or a range of the world, most significant human and physical features. They should develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
