Within our Geography and History departments, we aim to deliver an engaging curriculum that provides students from KS3 to IB with real life practical application, drawing on examples from all across the world to enable our students to become inquisitive learners and global citizens.
While we are busy helping to prepare and support our KS4 and IB students with their upcoming examinations, we are very excited about our KS3 provision at the moment.
In KS3 Geography, students have been learning about global issues related to food security, global ecosystems and climate change. Through enquiry-based learning, students are developing a range of skills that will have practical application later in the term. Year 7 will be exploring whether insects could be a viable alternative to eating meat whilst Year 9 will be taking part in their very own climate change conference.
Year 8 have been busy individually investigating their own choice of global ecosystem (biome) and have created their own survival “Biome Backpacks”. You can see some excellent examples below from the following students, Da Hyun (8S) Clara (8I), Tae Yeon (8S), Quynh Chi (8H), Bella, (8S), Bom (8S), Nah Yeon (8H), Xuan Mai (8S).
