Geography

Curriculam Button Two

Key Stage 3 

Years 7, 8 and 9
The study of geography stimulates an interest in and a sense of wonder about places. The Geography curriculum at Lady Margaret School is designed to help young people make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world. It explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected. It builds on pupils’ own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global.

Topics during Key Stage 3 include:

-  A local geographic study of Parsons Green – what the area is like and how it is changing

-  Rivers, using the River Ganges as a case study

-  Coastal processes and the impact of changing coastal landscapes

-  Population change – issues of migration and the impact and ethical issues involved in population policies such as China’s One Child policy

-  The global diamond trade – how diamonds are formed, who is involved in the diamond trade, issues involved with conflict diamonds

-  Development – issues of different types of trade versus aid

-  Glaciated Landscapes

-  The new India and the implications of global economic change

-  Tectonic processes and their impact on human populations.

All these topics are designed to examine the links between the human and physical environments and cover greater issues such as the challenges of economic, environmental and social sustainability.
