Locational knowledge starts with the local area. Young children need to be able to locate and identify places within their own locality which are important to them. As educators we should be encouraging and developing these early geographical skills so that by the time they leave primary school the children’s locational knowledge and understanding is of a level that prepares them for the wider world they are about to venture into.

The National Curriculum states that it aims for all pupils to “develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics”. This is really important knowledge that we need to teach our children, and how we do this can have a real impact across the curriculum.

The training considers:

  • The locational knowledge children are expected to know;
  • Different types of maps – OS, topographical etc.;
  • Cross-curricular map work (focusing on historical links);
  • Using maps for progression year-on-year.
