Curriculum >> Key Stage 3 >> Geography
The Geographers at Dukhan English School aim to:
- build an extraordinary learning community that goes beyond the curriculum- foster a spirit of enquiry and continual improvement- draw on the rich variety of experiences and views to support a coherent and collegiate approach to teaching and learning- enable each person’s continued personal and professional development
For pupils we seek to engender:
- knowledge and understanding of the Planet Earth and its peoples- lasting awareness of the world around us- sensitivity and empathy towards all others- tolerance and independent thinking- preparedness for an active citizen’s role in a changing world
In our department every person’s opinion counts and is valued. The pupil voice is encouraged and listened to.
At KS3, students study a variety of topics
which we hope will be both informative and stimulating. Students are assessed
at the end of each topic, and in addition they sit a major assessment covering
of all the work they have studied to date during that academic year, plus two
staging post assessments at key points in the academic year.
