  • Know how to collect information to help them to gain understanding of the geography of an area.

How can you help at home?

Ways you might help your child to get a head start in Geography;

  • Teach your child to use different kinds of maps, atlases and digital software such as Google Earth to locate countries and places of interest;
  • Teach your child the names of the countries of the United Kingdom; England (capital city London), Northern Ireland (capital city Belfast), Scotland (capital city Edinburgh) and Wales (capital city Cardiff);
  • Teach your child that we live in Shipley, which is a district of Bradford; an important city in England;
  • Take your child on visits to different geographical locations; it helps your child if they can recognise the similarities and differences between different geographical locations.
