Geography Nov 2018

What's happening in Geography for Year 7 this week

After having successfully completed their Map Skills and "What is Geography?" PCT’s last week, Year 7 are now back in normal lessons and applying what they have learnt to a new topic.

In this Settlement topic, the students are studying how and why people live where they do. Currently, they are all part of a new Tribe, each with different duties such as Security, Chef, Blacksmith, Hunter etc., and they are developing their communication and teamwork skills in deciding which location is best for their tribe to settle in. I find it amazing to see all students stepping out of their comfort zones and formulating persuasive arguments drawn from taking different perspectives, at the same time developing their use of English through structured translanguaging activities that allow the development of both their mother-tongue and English. I am looking forward to hearing them present their final decisions next lesson!
