The Geography Department at The Wilnecote School aims to inspire students whilst developing a curious enquiry approach to the world in which they live. We do this by exploring a range of places and topics such as maps and the UK at a national and local scale to climate and ecosystems at a global scale. Lessons contain a rich variety of sources which include maps, photographs, written text, video clips and practical fieldwork. Students delve into the issue of sustainability and the need to preserve the planet for future generations whilst developing it to suit the needs of the present. Students are also taught to recognise the complex relationship that exist between the human and physical environments.
A variety of skills are practised in lessons and cross curricular links are made with lessons such as Science, Maths, English and ICT to enable students to further deepen their understanding.
In key stage 3 students study 3 hours of Humanities on their timetable – one hour for each of our subject areas; Geography, History and Religious Education
