At Grange Park Junior School the majority of geography is taught through the termly topic which enables children to develop an in depth understanding of the physical and human geography of the area that they are studying and the impact that both have on the region and the world as a whole.
Our pupils will develop their geographical knowledge through learning how to use a variety of maps and resources to locate continents, countries, cities and regions. They learn how to identify physical characteristics such as rivers, oceans, coasts, hills and mountains.
Pupils study the key aspects of physical and human geography such as climate zones, volcanoes, earthquakes and the impact of land use on both the physical landscape and the people that live there. Children also have the opportunity to use fieldwork to observe, measure and record their observations within the local area.
To ensure that there is complete coverage in our children’s geographical knowledge, we support our teaching with dedicated geography passport lessons that concentrate on geographical facts that children are expected to know – please see the link below.
