During our geography lessons, we aim to inspire within our students a fascination and interest in the world and its people. Students will develop an understanding of key human and physical processes, as their knowledge of the world grows throughout their studies. Not only will our students be taught in a classroom, but they will also have the opportunity to participate in some exciting fieldwork!
Key Stage 1 & 2 Syllabus
In order for our students to receive the best support for Geography, we only use the best resources that have been rated highly by teachers across the country. For key stage 1 we focus on this subject from a literary and logical angle; incorporating reading and logical thinking to supplement the young child’s mind until they become more proficient in reading and numeracy. We use the popular Evan Moor’s Daily Geography series for Key Stage 1 and 2, which provides students with an depth knowledge of the World and human and physical geography.
We aim to give children the best tutoring possible, which includes elements of the national curriculum; as well as other skill building work and syllabus which are effective for children. As we have an active community of home schoolers we aim to facilitate their education using the most effective tools and resources found. We also implement activities into our lessons and hope to plan future trips to museums, which will develop students historical interests and increase their curiosity about the past.
For key stage 3 we follow the fourth edition of the geog.123 course, which has been fully revised for the new curriculum. It is a popular course with a motivating and in depth approach, which develops an interest of geography within students. There is a variety of assessment materials, as well as student workbooks that will support the learning of our students.
At the Tuition Club we aim to support home schooling parents in implementing the Two Year Key Stage 3 Project, which gives students the option to complete the three year syllabus over a two year period. However, the implementation of this two year scheme of work is dependant on a child’s ability.
