Year 13 Revision

Please find the slides from yesterday’s lesson on the water cycle revision page. They include my plans for the two questions, but remember that there are a number of case studies and different approaches to these questions.

Also remember that if you would like to complete an exam question and send it over, I will mark it and give you some quick feedback if this helps with your revision.

Year 12 work for RMD this week

  1. Make sure you all go to S4 at the beginning of the lesson and complete a paper register. One of you is to give the register to Miss Steele.
  2. You now have two options:
  3. a) Either stay in S4 and use the textbooks at the front to read and make additional notes on any information you have found challenging on our topics so far (I will leave the post it notes in the books so you have some guidance but feel free to flick through). There is only one copy of each book so you will have to share.
  4. b) Or, go to the resource area and use the scans I have downloaded onto the Blog to complete the reading. Go to the ‘Y13 Revision Materials’ tab and select the Google Drive link to the folder for ‘Additional Reading’. You will find the scanned chapters in there.

Regardless of your choice, I expect to see additional notes that you have made when we return to school in January.

Have a lovely Christmas 🙂

Also, this recent news article should be of interest to you as we’ve recently discussed mega dams!

Mr. Reader

Y12 Tectonics

The article below is about ‘successes’ of the Sendai Framework and looks at what an earthquake-proof city could look like if it successfully implemented ideas from the framework itself.

I have also attached a link to the full Sendai Framework – you only received a small part of it in the lesson today!

Y13 Migration – Inequalities Homework

Your homework is to make notes under the following headings using pages 39 – 54 (the actual pages on the document are 35 – 50):

https://www.oxfamamerica.org/static/media/files/even-it-up-inequality-oxfam.pdf

  1. How is extreme inequality a barrier to poverty reduction?
  2. How does extreme inequality undermine growth?
  3. How does inequality hinder poverty-reducing potential of growth?
  4. How does economic inequality compound gender inequality?
  5. How does economic inequality drive inequalities in health, education and life chances?
  6. How does extreme inequality threaten society?

I would highly recommend reading the whole article as well as the bits you need specifically for these questions.

I would like to see that you have completed this work during NEA week next week.
