Geography at Forest Glade Primary School aims to encourage interest in and understanding of the world around us. We want to give children an understanding of various locations around the world, the different human and physical features around us and the people that inhabit our world.
This is achieved through a range of learning opportunities and experiences delivered through an enquiry approach as a curriculum driver. Children learn key knowledge and are encouraged to develop the skills of a geographer such as using maps and carrying out fieldwork.
A year 6 geographer can:
- Describe at least 2 different locations around the UK and the world.
- Describe what human and physical features are and give some examples.
- Explain how we use maps, atlases and globes to locate seas, continents, countries and other places.
