Key Stage 2:
At Key Stage 2 students will be introduced to Geographical concepts and skills. Students will have access to a wide range of topics which will stimulate their wider local and global knowledge.
In year 5 students study a number of different topics to allow them to build on their geographical knowledge from Lower School and to start preparing them for KS3 Geography. The topics follow the National Curriculum and students study a range of physical and human geography concepts.
