Geography

Mrs K Walsh, Geography Leader

Children will find out about different places in the Channel Islands and the wider world through studying small regions in each, comparing these to other areas, including their own locality.

In Key Stage 1, children will learn the names of the continents and oceans as well as the names of the four home nations and their respective capital cities. They will use the four main compass directions and simple maps and photographs to explore the local area.

In Key Stage 2, children will locate the countries of the world as well as naming the counties, regions and major cities and towns, focussing on United Kingdom and Channel Islands. They will begin to explore geographical features such as volcanoes and tectonic plates, as well as features of human geography such as trade links and land use. They will also learn to use grid references on Ordnance Survey maps to describe locations.
