We teach children the relevant geographical vocabulary and understanding, initially through the use of our immediate environment, and also from other environments in order to compare and contrast. They develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.
Children use maps and plans to enable them to become aware of the local area and further a field. They study maps and globes to identify landmasses and water, and gain an understanding of the wider world. They learn to use compass directions to describe features on a map.
Educational visits linked to Geography are also planned for to enhance children's understanding of different localities and allow them to compare and contrast these with their local environment.
