Welcome to our Geography Curriculum!

At The Rosary Catholic Primary School, we believe that Geography stimulates curiosity and imagination and we aim to build upon the child’s place in the world by developing geographical skills, understanding and knowledge through studying places and themes.

Through delivery of a creative curriculum in geography, children learn about their local area and the physical and human features within it. They can compare their life in this area with that of other regions in the UK and the rest of the world. Children’s spirituality is deepened through an appreciation of life in other cultures and a sense of wonder and fascination with the world.

Geography teaching also motivates children to achieve whilst finding out about the physical world. It enables them to recognise the effect of people’s behaviour of the environment encouraging their own growth when focussing on sustainable development for the future of mankind.

The Early Year Foundation Stage

It may seem strange to think about your 4 or 5 year old child as a geographer. However, the years from birth to age five provide a first opportunity to see how your child interacts with their environment — and how the environment influences them. The early learning goals at EYFS aim to guide your child onto make sense of their physical world and their community by exploring, observing, and finding out about people, places, technology and the environment.

 

Key Stage One
Children will develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They should 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.

Key Stage Two
Children will 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 should develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
