Year 7 have started their introduction to humanities. We held a class discussion to help define what is meant by history, geography and religious studies.
Our main focus for the second half of the autumn term will be geography. The pupils were asked to write down where they live, and then to add a short sentence about what they like about the area.
We then looked at a map of the world, as well as a globe. The pupils were asked to describe the main differences. One of the pupils answered that the map was flat whilst the globe is round.
The pupils then took part in a short quiz to help them understand a little more about geography. We came up with a definition that geography helps us to learn about the world.
Our introduction to geography ended with a look at the continents. Each class member labeled a map showing where each continent can be found.
