GEOGRAPHY

Aims

The syllabus is designed to consider a series of key ideas and concepts.  In particular we aim to create in our pupils an awareness of some of the spatial and environmental   patterns within the United Kingdom, the European Union and the world at large.

Senior One and Two (Years 7 and 8)

The following geographical themes are investigated:

    Map reading            weather and climate        economic activities
    Landforms            population            settlement
    
At the same time emphasis is placed upon the study of countries, particularly the United Kingdom, India and Brazil.  There is fieldwork in both urban and rural environments.

The “Key Geography” series of textbooks provides the backbone of the course, but a wide variety of other books, videos and materials is used.
