Time to move on!

The class of 2007 have left -hopefully most will return to do A level Geography in September -and it is now time to do a little housekeeping & re-establish the blog as a place to support quality learning in Geography for a new cohort of students. This is a welcome to the group I will inherit from the wonderful Mrs R. who goes on leave to produce a new little geographer!

All of the 'posts' to date refer to our 'old' EDEXCEL A specification, however many of the them will be relevent to your learning & so will stay & may be linked to. You are encouraged to visit often! I will post at least twice a week, linking to the lessons & at other times. Documents (WORD & Powerpoint) will be available via links to or & you are welcome to make your own copies to support your learning.

I will occasionally set homework based upon material or links posted on the blog & if I am ever absent I will support the sub lesson with a blog post. Develop a blogging habit!Explore the other Boston Spa Geography blogs & some of the other fantastic Geography blogs that exist.

A last word!

If any of my GCSE group read this..... I hope you had a great Leavers Celebration. I really enjoyed putting it all together for you all. I just spotted the comment on the last post! Thank you! If any group was going to sing happy birthday to me I am glad it was you! You have been an absolute pleasure to teach. I hope that many of you do continue to study Geography next year, but if you don't, remember you can never escape...... 'Geography is everywhere', infact 'You would be lost without it!'. I will add the link to the Celebration Day photos when I have downloaded them to Flickr. Thank you. Mrs J.

Countdown to paper 2

Check these out!
Not too sure about the tune but good to review the Mt Pinatubo case study (volcanic activity, LEDC).
There are movies relating to the Kashmir Earthquake (earthquake activity, LEDC) linked to earlier in the blog.
Try this to review Mt St Helens (& of course listen to 'ole St Helens'
This is a very stark reminder of the short term impact of the Kobe Earthquake (MEDC quake)
