GEOGRAPHY

Geography 

 

Geography at Knights Enham Nursery and Infant School covers the National Curriculum requirements. Geography is taught every other Half Term through a ‘Topic’. Examples of some of the topics studied during Key Stage One are India, Forests, Beaches and the Weather.  

 

During this early stage of the children’s education it is important to teach Geography related vocabulary, skills and fieldwork. This is done through trips, using the local environment and our rich school grounds and looking at different locations on the Interactive whiteboard. In Year 2 the children get the opportunity to visit Mudeford beach to develop their understanding of the terms beach, cliff and coast. 

 

During Key Stage One, the children get the opportunity to learn about the World’s seven continents and five oceans and name, locate and identify characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas. The children get to use exciting resources such as globes, atlases, world floor mats, compasses and aerial photographs. 

 

In Year 2 the children compare a small area of India to Andover to develop their understanding of geographical similarities and differences. Weather patterns and seasonal changes are discussed frequently in all of the classes in Knights Enham Nursery and Infant School. 

 

In Owletts, Owls, Puffins and Robins, Geography is taught and encouraged through The World, as part of Development Matters, the Early Years Curriculum. The children are encouraged to play with small world farms, garages and train tracks, to talk about and explore features and objects inside and outside of the classroom, to ask questions and are taught how to take care of the environment including plants.
