Geography - the world is in our hands 15 November 2018 This week in Geography, we decided to hand the baton over to Year 7 students to write in the newsletter about their experiences so far in their lessons this year. Without further ado, here are some reflections from Year 7: “In Geography we have learnt about countries, making mental maps, the Big Bang theory and the history of our planet. I like my Geography lessons because I find it very interesting. I like learning about how the Earth was created. I think that my best piece of work so far was probably the Find the Place countries, because I got full marks on all of them! I think that you should study Geography because if you want to travel the world, you should know a lot of countries. I think Geography is an important subject for any job”. Patrycja, Year 7. “In Geography the past few weeks, we have been learning about the Big Bang and the first animals/Homo-Sapiens. I think everybody should study Geography – why? It is very useful in our lives, especially when you like travelling. In Geography at the start of the year, we were doing Find The Place Geography. I really liked it because it’s so useful, because when you want to know where a country is – you know it! Before the start of the school year, I didn’t know about Bosnia / Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Hungary for example”. Adrian, Year 7. “In Geography we’ve been learning about the Big Bang, which was important in forming our Earth according to scientists. We also learnt about grid references – my favourite piece was this, especially the part where we tried making each other’s names in grid references! We study Geography because when we are older, if we want to know where places are then we will know.” Amelia, Year 7. “Learning about countries, cities, continents and maps has been a wonderful journey for us. We love the stories and theories like evolution and extinction of species. It’s an amazing quest for our education. Our best piece was when our class made a big long timescale in the corridor showing all the eras and time periods! If you decide to study Geography, you will love it! It combines logic, theories and a bit of history! In conclusion – learn Geography – it is amazing!”. Jain and Simona, Year 7.
