General Discussion / OCR B (Avery Hill) 2005 paper 4
« on: April 05, 2009, 12:17:15 PM »
Just got lumbered with some GCSE revision for my cousins!  One is doing OCR B and wondered if anyone has any past papers - especially paper 4 june 2005 for the problem solving bit.  Thanks in advance, Emma (electronic preferred please!!)

General Discussion / Maps SoW?
« on: April 05, 2009, 10:08:50 AM »
Does anyone have a SoW about maps.  Not just mapskills but using maps, creating them, reviewing them etc.  I quite fancy doing something with Y7 that explores different types of maps for a range of purposes, culminating in them creating their own map - perhaps of school?  Would emphasise evaluation and creativity as well as the geographical concepts?  Just an idea...

General Discussion / Overseas field trips
« on: April 05, 2009, 09:50:00 AM »
I am in the process of getting quotes for a 5ish day trip somewhere.  I want to offer an awe and wonder, look/see kind of trip rather than a hard core data collection/work type trip so that kids can get out and see geography.  It will be in a holiday (probabyl the tail end of Easter next year).  Any suggestions for destinations and/or companies please.  Ideally the budget is below £600, Iceland is therefore out!  I am leaning towards Sicily with Rayburn, or perhaps Provence, maybe the Alps??  Never done an international trip with the kids but regularly manage around a hundred for a three day coursework trip.

General Discussion / TV Sunday April 5th

Lots on tonight.  BBC1 - new slot for countryfile in the early evening, all about the Lake District tonight, preceeded by a repeat of the Joanna Lumley Northern Lights show.  From the Radio Times:

Joanna Lumley in the Land of the Northern Lights
Sunday 05 April, 6:00pm - 7:00pm, BBC1

Documentary in which Joanna Lumley travels to Norway's Far North to pursue a life-long dream of seeing the Northern Lights. Her journey takes her across the Arctic Circle, up through Norway and finally to Svalbard, the most northerly permanently inhabited place on earth. She explores the romantic fjords of Lofoten and learns to ride a snowmobile, speeding across endless expanses of Lapland tundra with a Sami herdsman in search of his reindeer. But will she finally achieve her dream?

Sunday 05 April, 7:00pm - 8:00pm, BBC1

We're used to seeing Julia Bradbury rambling nimbly about the country on Wainwright Walks, so her leap to the BBC's much-loved rural affairs show seems a fitting one. Along with ex-Blue Peter presenter Matt Baker, Bradbury is the new face of Countryfile, in its new early-evening slot. John Craven, synonymous with the show for 20 years, will retain a presence, reporting in depth on topical stories. This week, they're in the Lakes, looking at how the establishment of the Lake District National Park in 1949 has impacted on the landscape 60 years on. Bradbury also braves the "via ferrata" mountain-climbing experience at Honister, near Keswick.
