Geography

Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE) consists of three subjects: Science, Geography and History. SESE enables children to explore, investigate and develop an understanding of local and wider environments.

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).
