Many of our NICER Challenge Packs have a Geography focus. Children in reception and Year 1 start by understanding the concepts of near and far away, and make links to the local area where they live.

As children study local and national events during the present day and the past, there is an emphasis on locating where these have occurred, charting them on the globe, and considering what effect the place location and environment is likely to have made.

As well as factual information, such as names and locations of countries and how to recognise geographic features, children are taught the skills of practical geographers – map reading and comparison of different physical features and cultures.
