Homework and Additional Resources

All young people are encouraged to take an interest beyond the classroom in their ever-changing world; to engage with the news and to be curious about our planet.  Homework is set to include this and includes:

In year 7 geography, students are set homework projects to complete.  These are linked to the units they are studying at the time.  In year 8, homework tasks are set in line with the school policy.

All students in years 7, 8 and 9 are encouraged to complete the Geography activities in their Learning Beyond the Classroom booklets. 

In years 9 – 11, teachers set homework as appropriate.  Homework will set to enhance learning not simply for the sake of setting homework.  This may include written work, research or revision.  In addition, students are encouraged to:

  • Read the daily broadsheet newspapers (or their associated Apps) to develop knowledge and understanding of the world today.  This is important to excel in Geography.
  • Learn carefully and accurately the meaning of key words provided in class.
  • Use the revision packs provided by the school in year 11.
