The children will extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom, Europe, and North and South America. This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world's most significant human and physical features.


Children at Michael Drayton Junior School (MDJS) will develop their geographical understanding of the world around them through a varied and rich-filled knowledge-based curriculum. They will also have the opportunity to experience first-hand the different features of the earth and apply knowledge learned in the classroom into their fieldwork.



  The national for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes.
  • Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are independent and how they bring out spatial variation and change over time
  • Can apply geographical skills needed to:

   * Collect analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes.

*  Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, ariel photographs, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

* Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
