At Key Stage 2, learners build on the skills, knowledge and understanding and that they have already acquired during the Foundation Phase. Geography develops and stimulates learners’ interest in, and fosters a sense of wonder of, places and the world about them. Through the study of their own Welsh locality, the world beyond, different environments and events in the news, learners develop their understanding of what places are like and
how and why they change. Through practical activities and first-hand investigations in the classroom and out of doors, learners develop skills to gather and make sense of information, use maps, think creatively and share ideas through discussion. Geography provides opportunities for learners to consider important issues about their environment, and to recognise how people from all over the world are linked. They are encouraged to
understand the importance of sustainability, develop an informed concern about the quality of their environment, and to recognise that they are global citizens.
