How will my child progress in their knowledge, skills and understanding in Geography?

Progression of Knowledge, Skills and Understanding (KSU): Geography


Through IPC Geography tasks, learners will know that the study of geography concerns the interaction of people and their environments, including the economic, social and political factors and how they impact on people and the environment.


Learners will gain knowledge through feeding their curiosity about places and the people who live there and by asking increasingly complex geographical questions.


Geographical skills development requires collection and processing of learners’ own data and engagement with data represented in a variety of ways, including both digital and analogue maps, graphs and models.


Learners will gain an understanding of the relationship between where we live on earth and the impact on lifestyle, considering climate, economics, society and the environment. Learners will also develop an understanding of their own responsibility to contribute to the resolution of geographical and environmental issues. 


The Learning Goals in Geography can be identified as Knowledge (Know), Skills (Be able to) and Understanding (Understand).
