In the classroom…

Geography is a busy, exciting subject and students at Sancton Wood are always ready to try something new in our lessons. Activities range from dusting off their debating skills to evaluate how to sustainably manage rainforests or fragile coastlines, having a go at presenting their own research or projects to their classmates, carrying out science experiments to test geographical theories, exploding (or eating!) their own volcanoes, putting their map skills to the test indoors and outdoors and even, occasionally, getting up and dancing (!) It’s all part of the learning process and hopefully the photos below will give you a feel for some of the things we get up to in our geography lessons at Sancton Wood…
