WorldWise Week (WWW), formerly known as Geography Awareness Week, comprises of teaching resources for teachers with activities for students at all key stages and abilities. The activities are all linked to the current year's WWW theme and can be downloaded free of charge. The resources are for use either during the designated WWW (during the last complete school week of June each year) or at any other time that may be more convenient for your school.

Thank you Meg for sharing that.
A very sad loss to the geography community - she will have influenced so many over the years with her keen intellect and deep thinking.

I just signed the petition "Save The Ordnance Survey (0ur Maps)" and wanted to ask if you could add your name too.

KS3 intended to be a 3 year programme.
GCSE intended to be a 2 year course.
Wish schools would stop playing around with it. It seems like they are experimenting!

The nomination process is open for the two awards which will be made to teachers at the Society’s AGM in June through the Ordnance Survey Awards for ‘for excellence in geography education at the secondary level’.
 
We always have a high standard and last years’ awards were made to Andrew Emms  and Raphael Heath
The deadline for nominations is 26th February 2016 and full details of the OS awards (and the others that the Society makes), alongside how to nominate are available on this link.  http://www.rgs.org/AboutUs/Medals+and+awards/Medals+and+awards.htm
 
I imagine you may know a teacher/s whose work might be considered for recognition in this way and we would welcome a nomination/s from you.
 
If you’d like any more info about the awards  - for e.g. they are always competitive and nominations should be made without the nominees knowledge – do feel free to drop me a line.  It’s the Society’s Trustees who make the final decision and I’m very happy to talk through the process. 
 
Best wishes,

Steve

This Tube map shows actual times between stations when walking - might be useful for some!

Wow Val - I read your news with a mixture of emotions! Thank you for using this forum to share your news.
I find it hard to believe that you are retiring - you will be greatly missed by many people far and wide - however I do not blame you at all and I would like to wish you well.
Of course you are not disappearing and many people may indeed be seeing more of you!
I would like to thank you so much for ALL you have done for the world of geography, not just "north of the border" but also "south of the border too" - your influence and inspiration and enthusiasm have touched many people. You have been a most infuential member of this forum too.

I am so pleased to hear that Peter is going to follow in his parents' footsteps and I look forward to approving him as a member of this forum in the not too distant future!!
