Geography is taught as part of a Humanities carousel in Year 7.
Students will learn how to discuss real world events and their impact on the world using geographical vocabulary. Students will learn how there are different aspects to Geography from the natural world to human impact on the world. Students will spend time using their mathematical skills to ensure they are able to interrogate and produce data for geographical research purposes.
In Year 8, students will cover the challenges of producing energy in a sustainable way. They will compare how different regions of the world consume natural resources and how these are replenished. In their study of the African and Asian continents they will address the interaction between the physical and human world and how this can sometimes lead to conflict. Year 8 students will develop skills in interpreting geographical data, in map reading and in identifying and explaining geographical patterns and processes. Through this they should gain a deeper understanding of the Earth’s processes and the impact we have in the world around us.
