Geography at Wateringbury inspires our pupils to be interested in the world and the people in it. The Earth’s physical and human processes – and how they interact – are fundamental to the teaching of geography. Children become skilled at using maps and atlases and acquire geographical vocabulary. Local fieldwork helps our youngest pupils to develop observational and mapping skills.
As pupils move into Keystage Two, the study of geography widens to include distant countries and continents. Physical geography examines some of the most diverse biomes and human geography explores settlements, land use and trade, making links with the history curriculum.
These are our geography topics for this year (2016/17)
