GEOGRAPHY

Key Stage 3

Geography at Key Stage Three aims to develop pupil knowledge and understanding of a wide range of people, places and environments and their understanding of the changing nature of geographical patterns and processes over time and place. Pupils are taught a range of skills and techniques to enable them to use information to undertake geographical enquiry and to develop a reliable perception of distance and location, over a widening range of scales.

At Key Stage Three, pupils are taught nine topics over three years. Each topic is assessed via an end of topic test (percentage awarded) and a levelled assessment homework.
