Geography in EYFS

Foundation Stage geography is where your child begins to gain a wider experience of the world around them.


Your child will learn through first-hand experiences to explore, observe, problem solve, predict, think critically, make decisions and talk about the creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments.


The teacher will ask your child open-ended questions, for example, “What can you see here?” to help your child to think and make connections between ideas.


Children learn about seasons, the weather, features in the local area and the buildings that surround them. They may be shown photographs of the local area to help them identify features, for example a library, railway, church or mosque. They will also be encouraged to record their findings, perhaps through drawing, writing, and modelling.
