Geography Yearly Overview

Please refer to the 'Yearly Overview' attached and the class  'Curriculum Overview' documents 2020-21 found under each 'class page' tab for specific topic and learning areas.



Geography in the foundation stage is taught as an integral part of the topic work covered during the year and the children determine many of the topics taught based on their own interests and play preferences.  The statutory framework for the early years foundation stage 'early adopter version' (July 2020) will be followed this year.  The curriculum opens a child’s mind up to what they can learn about events, people and places via a play based, self-discovery approach.
