Exam Technique Session

Hi Year 12 and 13,

Just a reminder that this Thurs, p4 (S4) there will be another exam technique session. This week it is on Regenerating Places (so your current topic Yr12!).

The question we will be looking at is: Evaluate the reasons why some places are ‘economically successful’, while others are not (20 marks).

Please let me know if you would like to come so I can get an idea of how many resources I need to print off.

Thanks,

Mr. Reader

Another post Year 12!

As promised here are the notes from today’s lesson about regional, national, global and international influences on Ulverston. This must be finished in your own time along with the research sheet about how Ulverston has changed and the IMD comparison table (for those that were away on Wednesday).

Year 13 – The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security

Hi Year 13,

Just a few reminders and things to let you know about what is coming up:

  • Please remember folders as I will be doing a folder check tomorrow to check all the water cycle stuff is all up to date!
  • I will mark the end of topic tests you did today ready for your lesson next week.
  • We start our new topic tomorrow – the new page is ready to go on the blog, make sure you know where to find stuff!
  • Below is a link to the master class on the carbon cycle. It is based in the Lake District. I would like all of you to watch it as it is excellent for this topic. I will let you know more about it in tomorrow’s lesson, but here is the link:

Year 12 – Regenerating Places

Hi Year 12,

For the first lesson in our new topic we will be in the computer rooms, it would be useful in preparation for this topic that you could have a look at these slides, and the datashine website. We will be comparing Ulverston and Salford Quays, which are the chosen case studies for this topic on regeneration!

Yr13 Geography

Hi Yr13,

In preparation for a 20 mark question you are going to be set tomorrow or Thursday, I have some links to some useful articles about water insecurity. For this longer question, it would be brilliant to see evidence of wider reading. I don’t expect you to read everything here, but the first three links are good.
