Children have opportunities to:
- A greater fluency with world knowledge by drawing on an increasing breadth and depth of content and contexts,
- Extend from the familiar and concrete to the unfamiliar and abstract;
- Make greater sense of the world by organising and connecting information and ideas about people, places, processes and environments;
- Work with more complex information about the world, including the relevance of people’s attitudes, values and beliefs
- Increase the range and accuracy of pupils’ investigative skills, advancing their ability to select and apply these with increasing independence to geographical enquiry.
- An enquiry ‘project’ based on human impact on the geography of the world so that children
- Compare British Values with other countries and develop a deeper cultural understanding of countries studied
This will be underpinned and progressive across Key Stage 1 and 2 through a curriculum that plans for:
- A contextual world knowledge of locations, places and geographical features.
- An understanding of the conditions, processes and interactions that explain features and distributions, patterns and changes over time and space.
- A competence in geographical enquiry, the application of skills in observing, collecting, analysing, mapping and communicating geographical information.
