Secondary Curriculum – Geography
knowledge is structured in consciousness
IN THIS SECTION
I am Mareanna Ingram. I have been teaching at the Maharishi School for 16 years. Both my daughters (at university now) went to the school from Reception, where I believe they received a wonderfully holistic education.
My subject is Geography – probably one of the most exciting subjects to teach. It is a great joy to share this journey of discovering the world anew with each year group. We explore the world through maps. Our first question is always, “Where am I?” We play games like the jelly baby game and have debates about population structures around the world that involve us all, and best of all we get to go out in the world and learn about settlements, honeypots and rivers in the field.
