Geography

The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  •  Develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics.
  • Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time.
  •  Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes.
  •  Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
  •  Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
