Geography Sequence of Learning

Geography Substantive Knowledge

Substantive Knowledge in geography is the specific and factual content of Geographical Enquiry. For example in Location Knowledge, Place Knowledge, and Human & Physical Geography, pupils will learn how to name and locate different places in the world.

Geography Disciplinary Knowledge

Disciplinary Knowledge in Geography is delving deeper – using prior knowledge to build upon the children’s understanding of scale and to apply their knowledge using skills. In Geographical Skills and Fieldwork for example, pupils will apply their knowledge using fieldwork and present their findings using map work, sketch maps and graphs. The Disciplinary Knowledge allows children to practise Geography outside the classroom.
