Children’s geographical learning starts with the familiar and slowly builds outwards, from our school and Hatherley, to the UK, Europe, South America and Africa. Their understanding of how their local area fits into the wider world is therefore gradually accrued.   

Progression within the curriculum is clear: it starts with what is familiar to children and extends outwards. Progression in fieldwork skills is built across units, with the local area units offering rich opportunities for mapping, technical drawing and exploring their environment in a concrete physical way. Other units offer scope for children to use digital resources, globes, atlases and Geographical Information Systems to explore regions.
