Within Key Stage 3, our Geography curriculum begins with an introduction to the subject of geography as well as the teaching of map reading, an essential geographic skill. We then explore the Earth’s continents and regions to develop locational knowledge and a sense of place. In Year 8 and 9 we then cover specific geographic disciplines and topics, alternating between human and physical geography, and the relevant geographic skills necessary to access each topic. In doing so, we look closely at specific geographic features, processes, people, cultures and communities to development our pupils’ curiosity and understanding of the wider world around them.
