    Hi there,

    I am an NQT (and subject coordinator from September!) and I really want to re-jig our KS3 curriculum. It would be really helpful if anyone could give me a really brief overview (or less brief if you have one handy!) of their KS3, I'm planning it and trying to tick all the NC boxes! I can send my email by message. Thanks so much in advance! Robyn :)

    At the moment ours is:

    Y7
    Intro - human/physical, quality of life indicators
    Weather and climate
    Rainforests and Deserts
    Global warming

    Y8
    Tectonics
    Demographics and pop
    Rivers
    Shopping

    Y9
    Coasts
    Economic development
    Settlement
    Urbanisation

    We have a 2 year KS2.

    We cover:
    Year 7
    Local Geography (including human and physical), - settlement
    Our place in the country - urban geography, significant settlements, services.
    Map skills fit within those two but I do have a separate short scheme depending on how things have gone
    Earthquakes
    Volcanoes
    Farming/fair trade - globalisation if we can fit it in

    Year 8
    Coasts (we are on the coast, so get out and about)
    Weather and Climate - including a microclimate investigation on the school site
    Deserts
    Impossible places - adapted from the RGS (Las Vegas to follow on from deserts, which builds on weather)

    We also have to revise for end of year exams.
    I'd like to do a lot more but apparently other subjects need to be taught! It makes sense in my head!
