The National Curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils :
[...] . understand how human and physical processes interact to have an impact on and form distinctive landscapes
. build on their knowledge of globes, maps and atlases and use these geographical tools routinely in the classroom and in the field
. interpret Ordnance Survey maps in the classroom and the field, including using six-figure coordinates and scale, topographical and other thematic mapping, and aerial and satellite photographs
. use Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to view, analyse and interpret places and data
. use fieldwork to collect, analyse and draw conclusions from geographical data, using multiple sources of increasingly complex information.
