Geography Curriculum

History and Geography

History and Geography curriculum is planned using the National Curriculum relevant to each phase and is supplemented by Learning Challenges which use an enquiry based approach to develop both knowledge skills and understanding in both areas. Each unit of work is divided into Key Driver questions and the children explore further subsidiary questions in order to meet their learning objectives for the unit.

Geography

Through geography lessons, children are encouraged to develop their skills through undertaking fieldwork trips, using globes, maps, atlases, photographs and artefacts to develop their knowledge and understanding of places both locally and throughout the world. Children are also encouraged to learn about their environment and environmental changes that are taking place both locally and worldwide.

Year 1:  We walked to the shop, bought our own stamps in the shop and then posted them in the post box. 

When we got back to school, we learned about what would happen to our letters now. We looked at the sorting office and how it sorts the letters by postcode. (We learned our addresses as homework!) 

  

                                       

Year 3:   We have been locating all the prehistoric sites in the UK using interactive maps. We have been learning all about Skara Brae and it's importance in the Stone Age.  We used atlases to help us find it.

                       

Year 4:   We have created a country profile all about Norway as part of our Vikings topic. We have learned all about what the UK used to be like many years ago.
