I've written ours but use Serif which is very user friendly, but unfortunately not free. I would just make sure your students are clear on things like copyright and school policies regarding content etc.
just can't see the point of TES allowing people to charge for their resources, if you search and share enough you will always find sites like this that are full of practitioners who realise the merits of sharing resources, not trying make money off them.

For about this and more of my opinions, please send me £1 ;D

Has anyone seen anything showing a list of command words and their meanings for the new GCSEs? I know on an AQA course they showed some of the command words that were going to be used, but i want to make a display and help sheet that show what these words mean.

Thanks Kate
Just to say picked this up with the TES and they dealt with this very promptly and properly.

Bob thanks again for highlighting

Hi all,

I'm thinking of starting a Geography website web development group as an extracurricular activity from September. The aim is to stretch the more able students in Key Stage 3.

I'm aware of basic free website development tools such as wix, but are there others out there that you would recommend? And have any of you done something similar before?

Thanks in advance,

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
Sorry Matt -my mistake
