Sorry to be a pain but can anyone suggest any video clips that I could show to help with this? Also has anyone got suggestions of how to make it really engaging. I was going to design a plant but students have already designed a rainforest animal. many thanks.

I know this sounds ridiculous but can anyone suggest a clip I can watch about tropical rainforest vegetation? I have a very low ability class. My room is very bright even with the blinds closed so I have no chance with Planet Earth and the cappock tree! Thanks in advance .

Sadly no student last year achieved an A grade in AQA Geography syllabus A.  If anyone is buying back scripts to use in classes at this level I would be really grateful to receive a copy. Scripts from other years at this level would also be very helpful. I know its a big ask but thanks in advance.

General Discussion / GCSE starting in year 9
« on: June 22, 2016, 03:16:27 PM »
My school has made the decision to start gcses in year 9. I am very aware that this year group will struggle with the jump in the academic demands. Has anyone else faced this problem ? I was considering some sort of bridging course at the start of the year but I'm not sure this is the answer. Also can I ask if other schools in this position teach completely different topics in a two year KS3 to those covered in the gcse or do you overlap? Many thanks

We are going to adopt the approach many schools have taken which is to cover gcse over  three years . I would be really interested to know what topics schools cover on a two year KS3. Many thanks .

I'm sure I have seen in the past a very short but simple animation which explains this. Does it ring any bells with anyone?

I would be happy to share. AQA gcse  :)

Thank you so much. I shared these resources with many grateful colleagues.

General Discussion / Crime activity

Does anyone remember seeing a crime design activity where students have to design a housing estate but they are only able to select from a certain number of objects which are all given a price? Students have a budget that they can spend.
I am probably going back a few years now. Thanks
