Geography

Our curriculum

 

At Guiseley Primary school we teach our children to be inquisitive about the world around them. They learn about the Geography of their local area, as well as exploring the Geographical features of countries further afield. They learn what is in the world, where it is and try to find out why it is there.

 

Map skills

The children develop their knowledge and understanding of maps from Year 1 onwards. They learn about map keys and use positional language to give directions. They learn compass points and learn to use 4 and 6 figure grid references to locate places. They also use interactive mapping technology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to annotate their own OS maps and aerial photographs.

 

Physical Geography

From weather, mountains and volcanoes to earthquakes, coasts and rivers, the children learn about physical phenomenon around the world. They learn key vocabulary to name physical features. They start to question how they are formed, what causes them and why they are in particular places in the world.

 

Human Geography

The children explore how the distribution of the earth’s natural resources affects where and how people live. They consider the location of towns and villages and explore why they are in the location they are. The children also learn about how resources are moved around the world and the impact that has upon the human and physical geography of the world.

 

"I love doing Geography! It’s about the world.  Our topic is Africa and we are learning about a town in Kenya which is Africa and how it is different from Guiseley."   Elliot, Year 2.
