Geography at Longwick
Geography at Longwick aims to inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, which will then remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, as well as a deep understanding of key physical and human processes.
Children will develop locational knowledge through naming, locating and identifying characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas and naming and locating the world’s seven continents and five oceans. They learn to identify seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom and the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles. Their place knowledge is developed through studying the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom, and of a small area in a contrasting non-European country.
As pupils progress, they will gain a deeper understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes and the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Children are taught key geographical knowledge, understanding and skills through different topics throughout their school life.
