Geography

Children learn about the geography of their world in Autumn and Summer terms. In the first half of the Autumn term, children focus on geography through the lens of ‘community and identity’. This involves children learning about communities in Leeds, around the United Kingdom, and around the world, and how the geography of these places in entwined with community life.  Later in the year, children learn about different issues affecting people across the world.

Key geographical skills are taught in each year group and children have plentiful opportunities to practise and master reading and sketching maps of different scales, investigating sources, and completing geographical enquiries. Children gain experience working with different types of maps and atlases with increasing complexity, including digital mapping software.  Additionally, children undertake fieldwork in the local area.

In Autumn 1, children consider the needs of their local community. As a whole school, we conduct a ‘Big Clean Up’ where pupils contribute to keeping the school and local environment a tidy place. Pupils apply their geographical knowledge and skills in planning this special outcome.
