Geographical Skills and Fieldwork

Pupils should be taught to:

* use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries, as

   well as the countries, continents and oceans studied at this key stage

* use simple compass directions (North, South, East,West) and locational and directional

   language [e.g. near/far; left/right], to describe the location of features and routes

   on a map

* use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and

   physical features; devise a simple map; and use and construct basic symbols in a key

* use simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of their school and its

   grounds and the key human and physical features of its surrounding environment
