Geography

National Curriculum

A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction betwneen physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

By the end of Key Stage One Children need to:

  • Name the 7 continents of the world
  • Name the 4 countries which make up the United Kingdom and their capital cities
  • Identify seasonal and daily weather patterns
  • Use and understand geographical vocabulary:
  •  physical features: beach, cliff, coast, forest, hill, mountain, sea, ocean, river, soil, valley, vegetation, season and weather and human features: city, town, village, factory, farm, house, office, port, harbour and shop

By the end of Key Stage Two Children need to:

  • Use an atlas to locate countries in Europe, North and South America
  • Identify the position and significance of latitude, longitude, Equator, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Arctic and Antarctic Circle
  • Use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and key (including the use of Ordnance Survey maps) to build their knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world

Recpetion have started to look at desert island maps, Key Stage One are developing their map work skills looking particularly at symbols on maps, Year 3 and 4 are learning about how moutains are formed and Indus Valley and Year 5 and 6 are looking at the human and physical features of different areas of Mexico.

Have a look below to see some examples or work across the key stages.

There is a fantastic display in the Year 2 Classroom celebrating all the work they have done about China in Geography.
