Subject Focus: Geography


Geography is the study of the interactions between people and our world – so geography is all around you!  

In Year 7 we look at some key areas where the natural world and the human world interact.  We investigate water and its importance to our lives, we look at similarities and differences between countries such as the USA and China, and think about how that can be linked to the natural world.  We also investigate how humans are changing our planet – for the better or worse!  This includes studying climate change and different ecosystems. 

We use skills from literacy, maths and science in our subject so having a range of equipment is important – pens, pencils, ruler, a rubber, a calculator and some colouring pencils are all really useful.   

You may have done some geography before at primary school but as geography is so varied we will definitely be learning about some brand new topics when you join us at Heart of England School.
