is concerned with the study of places, the human
and physical processes which shape them, and the
people who live in them. Geography helps children
to make sense of their immediate surroundings
and the wider world.
Much of KS1
geography is based on direct experience, practical
activities and exploration of the local area.
Pupils will use maps, pictures and books to compare
Liverpool with other places. The children will
be introduced to the vocabulary of geography and
be encouraged to use the specific geographical
words to ask geographical questions.
At KS2 children will develop their understanding
of geography by studying a contrasting locality
and a locality in an economically developing country.
They are taught how to find geographical information
and develop skills to help them interpret and
make sense of the knowledge gained.
