Geography

At Yanwath Primary our Geography Curriculum aims to develop children’s understanding of Geography from an early age this includes children in our Nursery setting.  We encourage and develop our Geographical understanding through asking questions about our unique, local topography and comparing it to different locations around the UK and Globe. We make links between observations and how maps are used to survey the land accurately and begin to understand how simple directions build up to locating features on a map/atlas.

Geography is taught in blocks each half term alternating with History.  We aim to provide field work and trips to support our Geography teaching termly, for example Fell Walking trips to read maps, visiting local places such as Aira Force to develop Geographical observations and residentials to places outside of our county such as Edinburgh or London.
