Young geographers at Sudbourne are naturally curious about the environment which surrounds them. They show this by asking questions about the physical and human geography in the local area and try to make links so that they can begin to understand how they fit into the world they live in.

Children are taught the continents and oceans and how to locate them on maps, atlases and globes.  They are taught subject specific vocabulary and study how places are similar and different by looking at human and physical geography and learn how to give compass directions.  

As children progress through the school and by the end of Key Stage Two, they will have developed their fieldwork skills by going on a range of trips which support their learning and understanding.  Geographers at Sudbourne are aware that their actions affect the climate and understand the importance of having ‘a lifelong conversation about being at home on planet Earth’ (Geographical Association 2009).
