Geography at The Brunts Academy
Our teaching strategies aim to support students in developing understanding and improving their skills of data collection, presentation and analysis, as well as their ability to consider evidence so that informed decisions can be made. Students will work individually, in groups and as a whole class on problem-solving and decision-making exercises.
They will be encouraged to develop their research skills using a variety of resources, including recent magazine publications, newspapers and the Internet. There will be opportunities to develop questionnaires and analyse the results. Students will be encouraged to make formal presentations, to discuss their research and to complete formal written reports. Much of the teaching and learning involves practical exercises using information presented in a variety of forms, including maps, diagrams, photographs, satellite imagery, atlases and statistics.
The Geography course is well suited to pupils with good communication skills, and with an enthusiasm for learning about the changing world that we live in.
There will be opportunities for students to experience Geography ‘first hand’ by taking part in fieldwork.
Students who have studied and enjoyed Geography at GCSE level will be perfectly suited for this course, which also complements Science, Business, ICT and other Humanities subjects.
