I’m looking at Rivers in Year 8, sorry it hasn’t got an exciting title like ‘flooding hell -how will we all survive?’, which seems a requirement of the new Key Stage 3 curriculum, in fact I imagine we will be studying it much longer… the pilot GCSE has taught me how good geography can be drawn through a theme or place, encouraging deep learning. I believe the curriculum should offer these deep learning experiences, as well as, short topics and topicality.
