Bringing geography to life
KS3 students have been exploring current issues and geographical wonders focusing this term on weather and climate. A wide range of learning strategies were utilised to bring the subject to life. Students had opportunities to discuss, identify and compare different climates around the world. They created and designed posters about the earth and all of its wonders, drew images and symbols of their favourite weather types and presented their work to the class. They also completed a variety of Clicker tasks (an online programme designed specifically for children with a range of academic needs) and used role-play and physical theatre to explore and address issues and ideas.
Students were remarkable in continually offering fresh and exciting viewpoints and demonstrated their ability to be resilient, resourceful and charitable with a fierce desire to complete their work independently.
