Couldn't find that - in fact never seen it!
However have emailed you a few other bits!

Brilliant Matt - thank you for sharing.

I think this issue should be explored in geography lessons as soon as possible, even if it isn't on your SOW yet - pupils need to be informed and to have the opportunity to explore their views. Topicality in geography is vital.

Love it!
It would be good for all those geography teachers who spend long long hours at school and at times feel that they really should sleep there!

I took a group of geography teachers to Bolivia and Peru in 2012 with The Specialist Travel Company - they were very helpful, especially Adrian, who is a geographer! The tour was personalised for us! We had superb guides throughout!
