Geography
Croftlands School
The majority of work in Geography is taught as part of a class topic and often involves a lot of cross-curricular work. There are opportunities for the children to take part in fieldwork and investigative activities. Work is carefully planned so that a progression of skills, knowledge and understanding takes place.

Throughout Key Stage 2 the children study a variety of localities including national, European and the Americas.

Map skills are taught throughout the year as these are heavily emphasised in the new National Curriculum objectives. The children are given opportunities to use some of the skills they acquire in practical situations.
