Geography-led learning experiences are planned for and feature within long, medium and short term planning. Geography is taught through practical, appropriate activities which help to provide a context for the children’s learning. Learning will often take place within the local area to make it as meaningful as possible for the children.
Pupils 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. Pupils will use atlases and maps to name and locate the world’s continents and oceans; they will also name, locate and identify characteristics of the 4 countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom.
Across the humanities, the pupils use skills acquired in English, Maths and Computing to record their findings.
