Geographical Skills and Field Work

(map and atlas work; Field work and investigation):

 

Use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries and the surrounding seas

• Use aerial images and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks, and basic human and physical features

Use and construct basic symbols in a key 

• Use directional language (left, right, forwards, backwards) and locational language (e.g. near and far) to describe the location of features and routes on a map.
