Our Vision and Approach in Geography

The Geography department at Buile Hill aims to create opportunities for all by creating an environment in which students enjoy their geography lessons through a purposeful, challenging and engaging curriculum. We are committed to providing an inclusive, stimulating and inspiring environment, which sparks student curiosity and supports their learning, which is embedded by high expectations. Students will explore their own place within the world and their values and responsibilities to others, to the environment and to the sustainability of our planet. We aim to encourage student's critical thinking and questioning skills to develop an interest and sense of wonder about the human and physical features of our world. Students gain the necessary skills to navigate a successful future.

How you can support your child’s learning in Geography:

• Students will have a knowledge organiser for each of their schemes of learning. Students can use these to test themselves on the core content throughout the term.

• Question your child on what they have learnt in lesson.

• Encourage them to watch the news regularly to keep up to date with the latest weather events, migration and developmental news. Ask them questions about how the latest news ties into their geography lessons.

• Students at KS3 will receive retrieval knowledge homework quizzes every two weeks.

• Students at KS4 will receive a homework booklet with tasks to complete every week.

Websites you can visit:

• Internet Geography is a great site with the latest topic information, additional resources, and activities. The website supports the KS3 curriculum and the AQA exam board.

• BBC Bitesize has a range of reading materials and resources to further support learning, revision and homework. The information has been written by subject teachers and covers a broad range of topic.

• GeoGuessr supports the confidence in students place and spatial knowledge. It’s a fun, interactive game which uses Google Maps to identify and take students on a virtual journey around the world. It’s fun for all the family to get involved.
