Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

In Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 the children follow a rolling programme.  This means that the children have a wide range of experiences and allows them to revisit key geographical ideas in different contexts.  During their first three years at school, all children study the following at least once:

  • Local area
  • Contrasting locality
  • Environments

The Reception, Year 1 and year 2 curriculum has a clear focus on developing the child's sense of place, first looking at the immediate area around school and home, before setting that in a national and global context. The children have the opportunity to compare and contrast localities, developing their geographical enquiry and fieldwork skills in the process
