Geography Curriculum Intent

At the Ripley Academy we teach a wide range of topics in Geography at KS3. We cover skills such as map skills, GIS and the use of graphs/ charts and ICT, these underpin all topics throughout year 7 to 13.  There are physical topics such as natural hazards, extreme weather and rivers and how humans interact with the natural world and the issues the environment can bring. Conversely, we look at how humans via economic development can exploit the natural world. In a nutshell the KS3 content helps students understand about the whole world around them.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.
