Our Geography curriculum is guided by the National Curriculum (2014) for KS1 Geography, and the statutory early years foundation stage and development matters frameworks.
Pupils should be taught about:
Human and physical geography
Use basic geographical vocabulary to refer to:
Geographical skills and fieldwork
Our intent is that geography teaching will give children a good understanding of the world in which they live. This begins in the EYFS as children learn familiar places that are important to them such as their home and their school. In KS1 we aim to build on this foundation of knowledge extending beyond their locality to the country in which they live, building to the United Kingdom’s place in the wider world. Through teaching of geography children will become confident in recognising geographical features and through field work and exploration they can record their findings using maps, keys etc.
Our geography teaching is supported by our history teaching which builds on a local, national and global theme all building children’s understanding of the world. Overall, our aim is to give children the best possible introduction to geography which will give them a good base to stick further knowledge to as they move through their education. Our aim is that children become confident, enthusiastic geographers who understand and respect the world in which we live.
