There is now a link attached to the ‘GCSE Course Information & Revision Materials’ tab that will take you to the after school revision materials so far this year. You can then download the materials and work through the information/answers yourselves.
You will need to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the link.
I am not in school for P1 or 2 tomorrow. Please go to S4, get registered if someone is there to register you (if not, please register yourselves and take to Ms Steele). You are then to follow these instructions to complete the work – it will take the double lesson:
Produce a timeline of key events during the Cold War period. Take one of the GCSE History textbooks from my desk in S4 (which MUST be returned to S4 at the end of the double lesson) and use in conjunction with the PowerPoint called Lesson 4 Patterns of Power Change 2 Cold War (can be found in EQ1 on the Superpowers tab on the blog). Start from slide number 5 and follow the instructions for recommended page numbers. Notes should be brief as this is background information only. There are also Youtube clips in the notes section of the slides that can be watched to support if needed. I expect to see a completed timeline ready for discussion next lesson.
I am back in school at lunch time if you need anything.
I will see you next Tuesday (as we miss Friday’s lesson due to Bank Holiday – enjoy!)
Please click on the tab called ‘GCSE course information and revision materials’ to access blank revision spider diagrams for each of the topics on the 3 GCSE Geography papers.
The link can be found in the italics section or you can follow this link:
Remember there are a variety of additional revision materials for you to access on this blog, including our Manchester case study which is not in the revision guides.
Happy revising 🙂
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: 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 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.
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.
Please remember you are in N10 for the double tomorrow morning.
Your task can be found below – I will explain what you are to do when I see you.

Good morning all,
I hope the last minute touches to your NEA are going smoothly. Just a few reminders for you:
- Use the NEA help tab on the blog – there is a student friendly checklist but also a PDF of the actual mark scheme we will use to mark your NEAs. It is marked /70.
- A reminder that the data presentation, analysis and evaluation of methods and the conclusions & overall evaluation of the investigation sections are the heaviest weighted at 24 marks each.
- There are examples of good NEAs on the Edexcel website, check them out if you’re still not sure about structure
- Remember that each page must have your name, candidate number and centre number at the top.
- Try to number all pages and include a contents page.
- Include references at the back and I would recommend a cover page with your title, name, candidate number and centre number (and a word count somewhere visible).
- Your deadline is the first Tuesday back after half term – make effective use of your time on Monday to print and get yourselves organised.
Good luck – you’re almost there!
