Y13 Superpowers

Advance warning Y13!

Tomorrow we are looking at tensions over territory with a focus on Russia’s western border and the South & East China Seas. However, it is noted in the textbook about tensions on the Pakistan/India border and so there is an article below to get you started on some additional reading. I will remind you in the lesson tomorrow, but make sure you complete this task in your own time to help with those ‘assess’ style questions – case studies are important!!

In addition, here are some links (this list is not exhaustive) to read further into tensions on Russia’s western border and the South & East China Seas.

Year 13 NEA Info

Hi all

We will go through the presentation in lesson on Monday, but I would highly recommend you have a look at this before hand. There are useful links in the PowerPoint and I have included a very useful set of sentence starters that are well worth a look.

Reminder that you should be coming to lessons next week with the beginnings of data presentation.

Year 12 – Tectonics

Hi all,

To those that are yet to be set the exam question, please make note that this has been posted! For those that received the exam question today, below is an interesting article about inequality and governance impact on hazard effects – worth a read and highly topical if thinking about your response to a rather challenging question!

China ‘trying extremely hard’ on climate

Mostly a post for Y13 (but out of interest for Y12 too)…

Hope you have all had a successful week of revision and are ready and raring to go for Monday. One last article from me – I would like to think you have been keeping up with this news story anyway, but certainly of interest for those opting to do Superpowers or Energy for Unit 3.

Reminder that I am around if you would like any last minute exam questions marking – if not I will see you on Monday before your exam.

Happy revising 🙂
