  • To develop knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both land and water– including their characteristics.
  • That all children understand the processes that happen in a variety of different locations. For example: town flooding, cities being built and habitats changing.
  • Ensuring that children are competent in a wide range of geographical skills

At Carlton, children learn a progression of geographical skills through the different year groups that are linked with their topics. There is a broad and exciting range of topics covered including life at sea in key stage one through to the Amazon in upper key stage 2. A large amount of geography skills and knowledge are learnt and practiced though whole school topics and focus weeks; such as our UK focus week and our local environment whole school topic. Many school trips, including our Year 6 Residential to Weardale, provide the children with fascinating and hands on opportunities to put their skills into practice!
