During Key Stage 1

Pupils will develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They will understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.

Pupils will develop skills in the following four areas:

  • Locational knowledge
  • Place knowledge
  • Human and physical geography
  • Geographical skills and fieldwork

Details of how each area is broken down can be found in the overview and progression of skills of the Geography Curriculum at the bottom of this page.

During Key Stage 2

Pupils will extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features. They will develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.

Teaching in Key Stage 2 will further develop skills in the same four areas as Key Stage 1:

  • Locational knowledge
  • Place knowledge
  • Human and physical geography
  • Geographical skills and fieldwork

Details of how each area is further developed can be found in the overview and progression of skills of the Geography Curriculum at the bottom of this page.
