At Rudston Primary we are fully committed to providing a Geography curriculum that provides curiosity and fascination in the world and its people.
Through our Geography curriculum we aim to develop a responsibility for both the natural and human environments whilst respecting the diverse people, places and resources of our Earth.
Children develop the knowledge about how the structure of the world and the challenges it faces due to both human and physical interactions.
There are opportunities for children to explore locational and place knowledge and understand the geographical importance of Liverpool and how it has changed over time.
Children leave Rudston Primary School with the ability to question and challenge whilst articulating geographical issues with confidence.
Geography comes under Understanding the World in the Early Learning Goals. Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community.
Key Stage 1

- understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first-hand observation, to enhance their locational awareness.
Key Stage 2
