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!

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!!

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.

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!
