Faculty Leader: Miss A Bruce

 

All students at Frogmore study history, geography and RE throughout key stage 3 and a large proportion continue to GCSE in at least one of the disciplines.  As a faculty we strive to help students develop a curiosity about the world, its people and its past, which will last a life time. We embrace this philosophy and constantly adapt lessons in response to the dynamic world in which we live.  Independent skills and team work are actively encouraged, all the while focusing on developing a secure knowledge base and the ability to express this with confidence and clarity.

Geography Subject Leader: Mrs J Bate 

The Curriculum at Key Stage 3:

In years 7, 8 and 9, geography is about creating a fascination in the world in which we live. Our very first topic in year 7 is called 'Amazing Places', and gives students a taste of what they’ll be learning over the next 3 years. Throughout the 3 years we study a range of physical and human topics. Incorporated into these are key skills which are vital for students within geography and for their future. These include decision making, data interpretation and analysis, fieldwork, map and graph skills.

The Curriculum at Key Stage 4:

We study the AQA GCSE specification. Within this course we study geography in a balanced framework of physical and human themes and investigate the link between them. Students explore case studies in the United Kingdom (UK), higher income countries (HICs), newly emerging economies (NEEs) and lower income countries (LICs). Topics of study include: climate change, poverty, deprivation, global shifts in economic power and the challenge of sustainable resource use. Students are also encouraged to understand their role in society, by considering different viewpoints, values and attitudes.

 

Subject Enrichment:

We run a range of field trips giving students the opportunity to see what we’re learning outside the classroom. Information on each trip is sent to parents via ParentMail.
