Year 7
Lessons involve a range of activities which include questioning, analysing visual images, research, role play, mysteries, classifying information. Students also plan, collect and present data, as well as begin to analyse and evaluate this information. Lessons always include discussion work to enable students to share ideas. Students use ICT to research and present information in a variety of methods such as movie making. They also use GIS in their map work. Geographical skills are developed throughout KS3 and are embedded into each enquiry and unit.

Subjects covered in Year 7 include; The Restless Earth, My Sense of Place, Rubbish and Recycling, Rivers and Flooding and Our Island Home
