Geography at Manor Field Infant School
At Manor Field Infant School, we are keen to encourage a desire for discovery and questioning. Through Geography we work to develop children's awareness of the world around them. We showcase different cultures, environments, people and landscapes and encourage children to investigate and ask questions about what they see.
In Year One and Two pupils will investigate their local area and compare this to a contrasting area. They will find out about these environments and about the people in them. They will also name and locate the world’s 7 continents and 5 oceans and name, locate and identify characteristics of the 4 countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas.
'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Year 1
Year 1 had lots of fun creating their own maps of the bears journey using a key to show the locations of each scene. We spoke about which places were near to each other and which places were far away.
