Geography in Year 3

Geography in Year Three


In Year Three the children explore 'Geographical Enquiry', 'Physical Geography', 'Human Geography' and 'Geographical Knowledge'.


Geographical Enquiry


Throughout this topic, the children have explored and gained an understanding of where we live in relation to our neighbours using geographical terminology.


Physical Geography


Whilst researching this topic, Year 3 have developed their map reading skills to enable them to confidently describe physical features within Europe.


Human Geography


Through comparisons of our locality and localities further afield (in Europe), the children have been able to describe and explain what human features are and why our setting differs from those of others; espeically in the Mediterranean.


Geographical Knowledge


To summarise, the children are now able to use their geographical knowledge to name, locate and describe European countries, along with their capital cities and climate fluctuations.
