At Hurst Drive Primary School, Geography is taught for approximately 3 weeks each term in Key Stage 1 and 2 using the Plan Bee Scheme of work and is taught through Understanding the World in Reception both through adult-led and child-initiated learning.
The children learn about the world through exploring different countries, continents, seas, oceans and other human and physical features of the world around them. They develop their geographical skills and enquiry through asking and answering questions as well as learning about directions and studying maps. The children cover a broad range of topics to ensure they have a breadth and depth of understanding.
