Although we take the core of our Geography teaching from the National Curriculum, we believe very strongly that children's geographical learning should involve a lot of activity! Field trips, walks, sculpture, drama and many other areas can all be used to develop children's understanding of the world around them. A younger child's walk around the locality of the school, looking at the plants and animals that they can find, develops into comparing land use in Norfolk and Derbyshire in Years 5 and 6. Papier mache mountains created in Years 3 and 4 develop into walking up a mountain and investigating erosion and glaciation when the children are older.
As our own school is situated in a small rural village in Norfolk, we have also established a link with a school in Uganda in Africa. Through visits from the management team of that school, we have all found out more about every day life for the children in the school.
