AceTute tutorials for Year Group 1 Geography support the student’s learning at Key Stage 1.
Reflecting the National Curriculum, they can improve the attainment of students who are falling behind the expected level of attainment – and offer ‘stretching work for pupils whose attainment is significantly above the expected standard’.
Tutorials can offer support for the following key elements of the Key Stage 1 Geography curriculum:
- Name and locate the world’s seven continents and five oceans
- Name, locate and identify characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas
- Understand geographical similarities and differences through studying the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom, and of a small area in a contrasting non-European country
Human and Physical Geography:
- Identify seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom and the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles
- Use basic geographical vocabulary to refer to:
a) key physical features, including: beach, cliff, coast, forest, hill, mountain, sea, ocean, river, soil, valley, vegetation, season and weather
b) key human features, including: city, town, village, factory, farm, house, office, port, harbour and shop
Geographical Skills and Fieldwork
- Use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries, as well as the countries, continents and oceans studied at this key stage
- Use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map stages
- Use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features; devise a simple map; and use and construct basic symbols in a key
- Use simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of their school and its grounds and the key human and physical features of its surrounding environment.
All our tutorials are designed to be intellectually stimulating for our students and are focussed on academic excellence whilst removing the pressure students face in challenging times.
Our aim is to improve the prospect of exam success whilst always being mindful of our students’ wellbeing.
