At Plaistow we want our children to understand and develop their fascination with the world in which they live and the interaction between the physical and human environments.
In Key Stage One pupils develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They understand subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.
In Key Stage Two pupils extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features. They develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
Our subject progressions are bespoke to Plaistow. They have been compiled with reference to national and international bodies and organisations of which our school has membership to:
