Geography

Key Stage 3

In Geography, year 7 students learn about different issues to do with people and the environment.  They also get the opportunity to develop their key geographical skills .  They study topics such as map skills, hot and cold lands, how settlements grow and Europe.  Students will learn how to display information through various media, including drawing maps and sketches as well as writing.   Students are encouraged to explore topics independently using library and internet resources.  In class, students can expect to discuss ideas and work collaboratively as well as develop their independent learning skills.  Students will study Geography until the end of year 9, after which they will then have the opportunity to take the subject at GCSE.
