In Key Stage One children learn about their local area, study a rural community and find out about the country of Australia. They begin to use resources such as maps, photographs and ICT to research different places.
In Key Stage Two pupils investigate different places in the world through studying the topics of weather, Brazil, rivers and mountain environments and learn about natural disasters. They learn about physical features eg. the different parts of a river and human features eg. how settlements change. They also learn how people affect their environment in different ways eg. by reducing water usage. Children find the answers to the questions they pose through using resources such as maps, atlases, aerial photographs and ICT and present their information in different ways.
