S2 Geography

In S2 the pupils focus on different aspects of Geography.  The first part of the year focuses on ‘Rich World, Poor World’, where learners will have the opportunity to discover more about Japan and Kenya, two countries with vastly different levels of economic development.  The latter part of the year will focus on ‘Natural Hazards’, in which pupils will find out more about the structure of the Earth, volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis.

All S2 pupils will have the opportunity to visit both Our Dynamic Earth and Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh as part of the ‘Natural Hazards course.
