In Year 7 students follow four broad modules.
The first module is about Geography itself, what it means and the key three concepts that underlie everything we teach:
In the autumn term we study economic geography, considering the differences between primary, secondary and tertiary jobs and how these affect our landscape. The topic is brought to light in our day trip to Docklands.
In the spring term students will conduct a comparative study of Africa and India, looking at both physical and human aspects.
The entire summer term is devoted to climate change. What is the nature of the evidence we have for it, what are the causes, what are the impacts and what can we do about it. Case studies from Asia and Africa are considered.
