Geography

At Gorseybrigg Primary School we teach Geography through our Creative Curriculum in order to engage and enthuse our children and to promote their passion for learning.

In Geography, we aim to give the children the opportunity to:

  • Develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them throughout their lives
  • Develop a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes and it’s diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments
  • Develop the geographical knowledge and language to explain how the
  • Earths features are shaped, interconnected and change over time
  • Explore the world around them and learn the skills needed to collect and analyse evidence and communicate their findings

Our Foundation Stage children:-

Learn about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things.

They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.

Our KS1 Children:-

Develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.

They understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.

Our KS2 Children:-

Extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America.

This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features. They develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
