Our main aims and objectives
At the Duke of Norfolk School we believe that Geography should be challenging, motivating, topical and fun. In our diverse society in order to prepare our pupils for life in modern Britain, children need to understand other people and cultures. Geography makes a major contribution to children's physical, intellectual, social and emotional development. Geographical knowledge, concepts and skills are also essential components of a broad and balanced curriculum.
In the words of the children at our school, Geography is…
‘getting to know the world around you’ (Y4)
‘where you learn about the world and different communities and lifestyles’ (Y5)
‘learning about other parts of the world’ (Y6)
‘places around the world, where they are and reading maps and atlases.’ (Y6)
It is all these things and more.
