Geography is for children from junior infants to sixth class. The curriculum enables children to make sense of their surroundings and the wider world. They do so by developing a range of geographical skills as they explore the natural and human elements of local and wider environments.

The curriculum is presented in two sections:

  • Skills and concepts
  • Content:
  • Human environments
  • Natural environments
  • Environmental awareness and care.

The current curriculum was introduced as part of the Primary School Curriculum (1999).
