Geography

Geography is taught in three annual modules from years 1 to 5 and two modules in Year 6.

Why is the teaching of geography important for primary schools?

We believe studying geography creates global citizens. Pupils who study geography better understand the inter-dependence of our world and how we are connected through location, place, movement, region, and human-environment. All of these aspects are things pupils need to understand in our global society.

What is taught? 

Year 1

Pupils in Year 1 first learn about their local environment in the module My Geography. Pupils then learn to locate and compare Hot and Cold Places across the globe. Finally, Year 1 look at the world's oceans in their module - Sailing the Waves.

Year 2

For their first module, the pupils take a look at the world around them by studying the geography of The United Kingdom. They are then given the opportunity to study the exciting and colourful city of Rio De Janerio. Their final module Extreme Earth looks at the powerful geographical forces at play on our planet. 

Year 3

Year 3 begin their KS2 geography education by studying maps and globes in their module World Explorers. Later on, in the year they look in greater detail at the amazingly diverse continent of Africa. Year 3 also study the fascinating topic of Coasts and Rivers. 

Year 4 

In year 4, pupils’ study and understand Mighty Mountains before moving down under to explore the beautiful country of Australia. Year 4 pupils then get the chance to extend their knowledge from KS1 by learning in more depth about the physical and human features of North and South America.

Year 5

Year 5 pupils study the violent forces that shape our world in their module - Violent Planet. They also look at the fascinating country of Japan. Their third module is a study on the causes, impact and potential solutions to Climate Change.  

Year 6

Year 6 pupils look into the landscape, politics and prominent human and physical features of the U.K and Europe.
