Geography at Moorings Way

We believe it is important to plan the learning journey of the children from Year R to Year 6. Even though we are an Infant School, this doesn’t stop us planning what the children will learn when they leave us. This is vitally important. As 3 schools, we have joined together to produce a joint intention of what we want the children to learn. The following statements were produced by our subject teams in September 2019.

Learning in Geography

End of Year 2

By the end of Year 2, our geographers will have a keen respect, interest and knowledge of the world around them – especially their local area.  They will recognise and know their place in the world through a developing location and place.

An appreciation of the knowledge of impacts of human and physical geography.  They will have experienced their own geographical discovery through opportunities to develop their own observational and fieldwork skills.  This will help them to find their place in our world.


End of Year 6

By the end of Year 6 our geographers will extend their respect, interest and knowledge of the world beyond the local area – including UK and Europe and N/S America.  They will recognise significant human and physical features of their world environments and locations and be able to comment on similarities and differences between them.  They can observe, measure, record and present information and findings from their local area using a range of geographical methods to help them find their place in the world.
