Introduction and Aims
In Year 8, the pupils follow the QCA requirements for Geography. Their main resource is book 2 of the Oxford Geography series. They develop skills in analysis of data, interpretation of maps and photographs, mathematical techniques, (especially in work on graphs), as well as drawing skills and decision making skills. There is also scope for ICT work and fieldwork. They will cover work in physical and human Geography with a particular focus on physical processes in Geography in this year.
Students are continually assessed by their teacher using National Curriculum level marked assessments and tests. There is an end of year assessment which willl examine a wide range of skills and this information will be reported to parents.
Pupils are expected to come to lessons prepared with pens, pencils, a ruler, rubber and sometimes will need a protractor or compass.
