Welcome to the Worldlywise Wiki

 

This Wiki is primarily for GCSE Geography students at Chesterton Community College, Cambridge. It is to support our study of the AQA(B) GCSE course. Geography teachers and students at other schools are welcome to view the pages.

 

Key dates for your diary

 

We have chosen to study the course in a modular way - so you will study a topic, revise it in class and then sit your exam in it before moving onto a new topic. We've done this because it is what you - our students - told us you wanted to do when we surveyed you in Year 9.
