At Norfolk Community Primary School we believe that geography lessons should inspire curiosity and fascination about Britain and the wider world, and wholly develop each child's geographical skills, understanding and knowledge.
Our lessons are well planned, highly engaging and challenge all abilities where children are encouraged to partake in meaningful discussions using appropriate vocabulary. We teach a knowledge engaged curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all learners the skills needed to succeed in life. Lessons are taught through topics which allows links to be made with other subjects and ensures high levels of motivation and interest from children. Geography topics are the main focus for two half terms, with one prioritising a physical process and the other featuring more human geography.
