Throughout the school we take a practical and theoretical approach to the study of geography. Throughout school children find out about different countries and cultures and the way they differ from our own. Children begin to develop their locational knowledge by identifying characteristics of different countries. They also begin to build on their observational skills relating to both human and physical features both locally and internationally.


These skills are developed further into KS2 where field trips allow the children to study and record the world around them, as well as identify features of landscape and utilise a range of other skills to make sketches and pieces of writing about their experiences. In Year 4, the children visit Castleton where they experience the human and physical geography of the Peak District.  Geographical knowledge is developed through the closer study of maps and atlases and children practise using compasses, grid references, symbols and keys to read and create their own maps and apply these skills practically.


At Flanderwell Primary School we follow the new National Curriculum for geography which can be found at the following site:
