Brazil – a resource pack for KS1 and KS2 geography


This planning pack was produced with teachers from County Durham following a visit to São Paulo. The materials support the teaching of geography at key stage one and two within the context of the 2014 National Curriculum. In KS1, pupils are required to develop an understanding of 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. The São Paulo city / home enquiry in this planning can support this area of study.

In KS2, pupils should have the opportunity to understand geographical similarities and differences through the study of the human and physical geography of a region of the United Kingdom, a region in a European country, and a region within North or South America. The learning activities based around the São Paulo region support the study of this aspect of the curriculum.

This pack has been produced following a visit by teachers from County Durham schools to São Paolo as part of the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms programme. For more information about this professional development scheme see:

Thanks to the Academic Section of the Embassy of Brazil, London for their help in the production of this pack.
