As geographers, the children at Mary Bassett School develop their skills through activities linked to their learning themes. They develop their vocabulary to define and describe geographical features, both natural and human, exploring the impact of different events on the World from earthquakes to global warming. They develop their skills to navigate around globes, atlases and maps, using compass directions, grid references and symbols to find locations and give directions. The children develop their knowledge of the different countries that make up the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as exploring other continents and their countries linked to their learning themes. Children are encouraged to consider how the position of countries on the Earth will influence weather and impact on the humans that live there, comparing this with their own experiences.
Curriculum coverage for each year group in geography lessons is outlined below. The progression of children's skills and knowledge in geography is outlined in the MBLS Learning Scale. If you have any queries regarding how any aspect of geography is taught in your child’s year group then please contact their class teacher in the first instance.
Geography teaching at The Mary Bassett Lower School is coordinated by Mrs Collins-Pratt.
