Geography

Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds. It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps.  It teaches a range of skills to collect and analyse data through fieldwork, interpret sources of geographical information and communicate geographical information in a variety of ways including maps and writing. Geography is taught through a series of themes such as “Shall we go to the park?”.  Pupils start learning about the locality and countries in Britain in Year 1 before moving on to the wider world. Learning is enhanced by visitors (such as an Arctic explorer) and trips (such as the Cutty Sark).
