Developing locational knowledge is an important aspect of teaching geography. It's essential to give children reference points on a world map, opportunities to revisit the locations studied previously and the chance to explore where places are in relation to one another.

A set of maps has been designed to help children become secure in their locational knowledge. They are like locational knowledge organisers, allowing children to record any knowledge relevant to the places within the units they are studying.

KS1
The set of maps designed for KS1 gives children in each year group the chance to revisit prior learning about locational knowledge from their previous years at school. At the start of each school year, they are given the relevant map and add new locations studied throughout the year.

In Year 1, the children can use the map more as a point of reference. The countries are colour-coded and named in the key; children can match these up during their studies.

In Year 2, the map is colour-coded in line with the key, but children must use their knowledge and other mapping tools to help identify which countries studied are which, naming them in the key.

The KS1 maps clearly show the names of the seven continents and five oceans so the children can refer to them when needed.

KS2
The set of maps designed for KS2 gives children in each year group the chance to revisit prior learning about locational knowledge from their previous years at primary school. At the start of each school year, they are given the relevant map and add new locations studied throughout the year.

In KS2, the children are expected to use and develop their locational knowledge a little more. It's suggested that at the start of the year, the maps be used as a retrieval tool, whereby the children label the continents and oceans of the world. However, this could be done at any point the teacher deems appropriate.

Each year-group map contains prior locations studied for the children to refer to. They should add new locations studied by highlighting them with colours and then adding them to the key. Significant lines such as the Equator, Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn and the Arctic and Antarctic Circles can be added, along with any other details that may be useful for the children.

Personalisation for your school
In their current form, these maps have been developed to complement the suggested geography overview of the Learning Challenge Curriculum. If you would like to find out more about how they can be personalised for your school's curriculum, please get in touch, and we can develop a set of maps that are bespoke to your curriculum.
