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.
Geography in our school
Previously in Year Two the children have been learning about features of maps. Using their knowledge about maps they created their own fairy-tale maps. They will use these maps to write a set of instructions directing a friend how to get from one place to another.
