Geography Key Stage 1 and 2


  • Geography is about the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them, and the people who live in them. Geography helps us to understand the ways of life and cultures of people in other places.
  • A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.


  • Develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.
  • Understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography.
  • Begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.


  • Extend 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.
  • Develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
