WELCOME TO KENTONCOLLEGE Preparatoty School
Geography at Kenton is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes that shape them and the people who live in them. Pupils study their local area, and contrasting localities in the United Kingdom, Kenya and other parts of the world.
Within Topic, the Year 2, 3 and 4 pupils explore the world around them, finding out about Continents, Countries and their climates. It’s always interesting to research where our food travels to and from and even find out more about crazy weather phenomena… I hope you have your umbrella ready!!
Senior school geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds, using different scales of enquiry to view them from different perspectives. It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps and a range of investigative and problem solving skills both inside and outside the classroom.
As such, it prepares pupils for adult life and employment. Geography is a focus within the Curriculum for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development. It is also an important link between the natural and social sciences. As pupils study Geography, they encounter different societies and cultures. This helps them realise how nations rely on each other. It can inspire them to think about their own place in the world, their values and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.
