Geography is all around us and is an important subject for our children, allowing us to bring the wider world into the classroom through a range of engaging and exciting lessons.
In Key Stage One we learn about, the world’s seven continents and five oceans, the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas, similarities and differences between life in different countries, seasonal and daily weather patterns in the UK and comparing them with hotter and colder countries.
We focus on the following skills:
Using maps, atlases and globes.
Using simple compass directions.
Using aerial photos to recognise human and physical features.
Devising a simple map.
Using and constructing basic symbols in a key.
Studying the geography of our school and it's grounds.
We looked on Google maps and found our school, we then looked closely at our school and labelled some of the key parts such as the field, the playground etc.
