Geography

 

In Key Stage 1, we teach geography using a thematic approach linked to the overarching theme of the topic.

In Key Stage 2, we teach Geography in a 3-week block. We do this so that the children are immersed in the geography unit of work and are given the space and opportunities to develop their skills and understanding of specific geographical concepts, continents and world issues such as climate change.

 

The rationale below explains in more detail the 3 phrases of the geography curriculum in Key Stage 2.
