Narborough Primary Academy

Geography

At the Nar Valley Federation in Reception and Year 1, Geography is taught as part of half-termly integrated topics which may also include lessons covering science, history and RE.

In Years 2/3 the children begin to transition from integrated topics to units of learning which develop geographical knowledge, concepts and skills over a half-term.

In Years 4/5/6, the children study three units of geography per year: one focusing upon place knowledge, another on physical geography and the third an aspect of human geography. 

In all classes, we are developing the use an over-arching enquiry question to focus our learning in Geography.
