“In our changing world, nothing changes more than Geography.” – Pearl S. Buck
Welcome to Kingsley’s Geography page!
At Kingsley Community School, we recognise the importance of gaining knowledge of the world around us.
On Planet Earth, we are literally surrounded by Geography, from Physical features such as the vast, immovable mountains of Snowdonia, to the Human features of the commercial, rushing cities of the UK.
But as you encounter these features of the World, the question always lingers in the back of your mind…
How does it all work?
In Kingsley – that is what we aim to find out!
In Key Stage 1, we know that Geography is a relatively new topic. Therefore, children are encouraged to explore their local area, with its different Physical and Human features. They will learn how to create their own basic maps, and be introduced to a variety of Geographical resources such as atlases, maps, globes and compasses. Key Stage 1 pupils will also have opportunity to study weather patterns - looking how and why they change.
In Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to look beyond their local area, to the outside world. Children with be immersed in the powerful Physical features of the world, such as Volcanoes and Earthquakes in Year 3, and the human features of the world, such as South American culture and population in Year 5. Building upon their previous knowledge from Key Stage 1, pupils in Key Stage 2 will develop their skills in using Geographical resources. They will use physical and digital maps to identify features, eight point compasses and Atlases to locate specific Geographical features of the world.
