At Early Years, the key knowledge progression document takes reference from the following documentation: Early Years Framework, Development Matters and Birth to 5 Matters.
At key stage 1 and 2, the key knowledge progression document takes full account of the national curriculum’s strands of:
Human and Physical geography
Geographical skills and fieldwork
Skills are dependent on specific knowledge. A skill is the capacity to perform and in order to perform a deep body of knowledge needs to be acquired and retained.
Knowledge statements should be what pupils retain for ever. In other words, this knowledge is within their long-term memory and will be retained.
When considering pupils’ improvement in subject specific vocabulary, pupils could be provided with a knowledge organiser which contains the relevant words used for geography for their age group.
