Geography

 

There have been some exciting new changes in Geography at Sir Henry Fermor this year! Geography is now taught discretely from History as its own separate subject throughout the year. We have developed a comprehensive curriculum so that our students gain a thorough understanding of the different geographical features around us, places local to us and those further afield.

 

In geography lessons, students will use a wide selection of sources to help them understand the world around them.  This will help them gain a rich understanding of:

* how different land forms came to be and the effect they have on the environment around them,

*different climates and weather systems and,

*population and settlements.

 

Fieldwork and key geographical skills will be taught in each year group. By the end of KS1, children will be able to use a variety of maps including Ordinance Survey, describe locations using simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and use locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right]. By the end of KS2, children will be able to describe the location of features and routes on a map building up to use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and keys (including the use of Ordnance Survey maps) as well having a deep knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world.
