Geography

Geography is taught in three annual modules from years 1 to 5 and two modules in Year 6. In EYFS, history is taught through story-telling, carpet time, and immersive play. 

Why is the teaching of geography important for Cooks Spinney pupils?

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? 

Nursery

Pixies class will learn about the geography of their town in the topic - My Harlow. Then then explore maps and globes during Magnificent Maps. They finish the year by exploring land and sea in the topic Our World

Reception

Reception pupils begin their geographic journey with the module Home from Home. They then move on to explore our planet in the topic Wonderful World. They end the year looking at different habitats and climates across the globe in Beautiful Biomes

Year 1

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

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.Year 3 also study the fascinating topic of Coasts and Rivers. Later on, in the year they look in greater detail at the amazingly diverse continent of Africa. 

Year 4 

In year 4, pupils’ studies start 'down under' exploring the beautiful country of Australia before rising up to study Mighty Mountains from around the globe. 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 look at the fascinating country of Japan. Their next module is a study on the causes, impact and potential solutions to Climate Change. Finally, Year 5 pupils study the violent forces that shape our world in their module - Violent Planet.   

Year 6

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