Our young geographers!
Our pupils develop their skills as geographers through some of the following activities and processes:
Reading and interpreting maps of various scales;
Showing information on maps
Showing awareness of the types of information maps can give us, and their limitations.
Recognising that different versions of maps exist (eg. different projections, different world views) and that maps change over time.
Having a clear concept of how the world is sub-divided and what constitutes these component parts eg. continent, country, city, town, village; knowing the 7 continents and increasingly the countries within them, capital cities etc.
Distinguishing between physical and human geographical features and their relationships to one another.
Linking physical and human features to the development of different cultures and lifestyles.
Recognising the interconnectivity and interdependence of worldwide locations (eg. global trade) and how situations in one location can affect another (eg. environmental matters); the need for sustainability.
Recognising and explain links between Geography and other subjects eg. History, Science, RE.
