Is OPEN EVENING approaching?
Is it time to refresh a few displays?
I have dedicated a large portion of my time over the last few years to revamping our department displays, so here are photos and a small blurb as to the focus.

This displays demonstrates a variety of wonders our world has to offer, intending to spark student curiosity.

A welcome display showcasing some iconic human and physical landscapes.

Due to a shift in new GCSE reforms, Geography skills need to be at the forefront of our diverse subject. The display offers ‘how t’o advice for each map skill, with both visual and written step by step instructions.

Picture 12: What … pupils think of Geography?
Pupil voice is a powerful tool, so why not display students opinions of Geography for all visitors, staff and students to see.
Picture 13: Geography idols
I think every department should have a display dedicated to the legend that is David Attenborough. The amount of shows he has produced that are used in classroom every year is untrue!
Celebrity geographers is also a great way to highlight those who have studied Geography and how they have used their skills and knowledge to pursue various careers.
Picture 14: Map of the world
No Geography classroom would be complete without a world map, painted with blackboard paint for use in lessons as a resource. Not just a display….
Picture 15: GCSE Assessment Objectives
Great to highlight the new AO’s for GCSE specifications. Whilst surrounded by example exam questions, students will soon become aware of what the question is looking for.
Picture 16: KS3 Geography homework
Various tasks for various topics – Key Stage Three students love variety and choice.
Picture 17: Evolution of a Geographer
If you think about the skills geographers need to become successful – this is a great way to showcase to students the skills they will develop over the course of their learning journey.
Picture 18: Geography fieldwork
Again, what better way to highlight fieldtrips than a display.
Picture 19: How to be a good geographer
This display speaks for itself.
