Year 13 Revision

Completed revision sheets from today’s lesson are on the regenerating places revision page (click regenerating places tab above).

Also, a reminder tomorrow will be an exam technique session on Regenerating Places (3:30, S3).  Be clued up on the role of national and local governments in regenerating places (HS2, Heathrow Airport, Deregulation, Chambers of Commerce etc. )

Hope to see many of you then!

Year 12 and 13 – Catch up work / Article

Year 12: As a few of you are not in today’s lesson – I’ve attached the pages of the textbook we used to help you catch up. When you next see me come and pick up a worksheet for you to fill in about drainage basins.

Textbook pages Part 1

Textbook pages Part 2

Year 12 and Year 13: I’ve also found an interesting recent article about desalination, it would be well worth a read. I’ve put it in the Lesson 18 folder on the water cycle page.

Work for Yr13 – P5

Work for Miss Mardell’s class. Apologies I meant to come and set you this work, but had my Yr12s. Here is the work that Miss Mardell set you:

Use Superpowers Enquiry Question 2, Lesson 2 on the blog to follow the instructions – focus is on how tensions can arise over acquisition of resources in the Arctic. There is a clip at the end that should also be watched before tomorrow’s lesson.

Yr13 Exam Technique Sessions

See the link for a couple of changes to the exam technique timetable (carbon cycle and water cycle sessions have been swapped, and I’ve added the regenerating places session to the end).  Please note there will be two sessions in the final week of this half term.

For this Wednesday try to do a bit of research about energy consumption and energy pathways so you can contribute in the session.

Yr12 – PC Room Task – Case Study Research:

We will complete this task in the computer room tomorrow (Fri 1st Feb)

For you exam you need to have some case studies to show the role of local government in attracting investors. You are going to create two A4 sheets to print. Use the links below to create factsheet 1, and p251 / your own internet research to create factsheet 2.

  • Factsheet 1: Manchester Enterprise Zone / Airport City
  • Factsheet 2: Cambridge Science Park

For each factsheet outline:

  • How local government is involved in the plans
  • Which investors / companies have been attracted by the policies
  • The benefits of this investment and importance of each site globally.
