Pupils should consolidate and extend their knowledge of the world’s major countries and their physical and human features. They should understand how geographical processes interact to create distinctive human and physical landscapes that change over time. In doing so, they should become aware of increasingly complex geographical systems in the world around them. They should develop greater competence in using geographical knowledge, approaches and concepts [such as models and theories] and geographical skills in analysing and interpreting different data sources. In this way pupils will continue to enrich their locational knowledge and spatial and environmental understanding.
Homework is set as project based tasks once every half term. They will relate to the topic being studied at that time. These help to develop independent study skills.
They are generally leveled projects to enable all abilities access to the work, and it provides stretch and challenge for the more able.
