At George Washington Primary School, Geography is taught in an engaging and inspiring way where children are able to develop their knowledge of the world around them. By using a cross-curricular approach and choosing motivating topics, we develop children’s curiosity and fascination.

In KS1, children focus on their local area to understand and compare local history. They name and locate countries, continents and oceans and are able to describe geographical similarities and differences.

As children progress into KS2, they will build upon these skills. Children learn about human and physical characteristics, time zones and apply geographical skills and knowledge in fieldwork experiences.

We aim to give pupils the knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and the ability to develop a growing knowledge of the world around them.
