In Geography, the children at our Taverham Hall site are encouraged to question what they see around them. An investigative approach to the study of aspects of life at local, national and global levels is seen as the key to engaging all pupils. The topics covered are varied, as is the manner in which the topics are taught. Not only in a world wide context, but also across the curriculum – most noticeably with Science, Maths and History.
Field-work and visits are essential when studying Geography. Visits to Pensthorpe Wildlife Park, Framlingham Castle & College, the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth and exploring the river Wensum, which runs through the School’s grounds, all give pupils a fascinating insight into a range of industries and contrasting localities.
Interactive whiteboards are used to enhance the teaching of Geography at Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall, and a comprehensive set of digital resources allows pupils to explore topics and research them effectively undertaking projects on transport and rivers.
In the younger years, pupils begin to develop a real sense of identity through an active exploration of humanities based work in conjunction with the History department.
