Access our Geography Skills Progression chart HERE

At Wilby Primary School Geography is taught through topics which are chosen to help develop and further children’s knowledge of the world around us. We want to encourage children to critically examine, explore, appreciate and comprehend the world in which we inhabit.

At a primary curriculum level, the study of Geography focuses on notions of place, space and environment. Students develop the skills of understanding a locality and how humans have adapted to this physical space, transforming it – over time – into a ‘place’.

This begins at Wilby School at Foundation Stage where our pupils are taught key geographical skills in order to develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.

Across all three key-stages our children are also taught to develop geographical skills through first-hand observations and field-trips where appropriate (such as a trip to Southwold/ Dunwich to look at the effects of coastal erosion and the preventative measures in place).

During Geography sessions, children will build upon their learning – year on year – through development of Geographical skills, understanding and technical knowledge. This will be achieved through a combination of whole-class teaching, group activities and individual tasks.
