Hi All

I am sure many of you have seen this before, but I've only just come across this fantastic document from the RGS identifying lots of fieldwork locations and centers in different parts of London, complete with web links etc

General Discussion / Re: Geog and Progress 8

I don't think they have to- our school have made Hist or Geog compulsory for about 90% of students as some won't do a lang and additional science- that allows them to tick bucket 2. As we've now made RS a compulsory GCSE subject students can no longer do both Hist and Geog. We will be taking a big hit in Sept- we'll be going from 4 to 2 classes..... :-( The only up side is I might be able to get a residential up and running again due to the smaller numbers.

But they need the timings to discuss it don't they?  Is it really the end of the world if they spend two minutes talking about something else?

Thanks for sharing the PPTs, our options have snuck up on me so I'm presenting this today.  Hopefully I can encourage more than the previous incumbent.  I currently have a  year 10 class of one and a year 11 class of 6.   :-\

Break down the course into 10 key skills and track to show progress in each skill set.  This will help them to see what they are good at and need to improve.

Also, consider making up their data to show progress and focus your energy on teaching them well.
General Discussion / Showing progress in GCSE

Hi all

Can anyone suggest how we can show long term progress in GCSE? Currently (school policy) we do a past paper at the end of each topic (we are doing edexcel A) and record that on their progress sheet. Some kids, for example "X" is struggling and achieves G's in each past paper, other for example "Y" achieves C's on each one. I was observed by HOF who said that their tracking sheets doesn't show any progress as each past paper scores a similar result. I'm hoping to go back with suggestions of what we can do to move it forward, especially with lower sets.

Any suggestions on how to show long term progress with groups especially those weak ones who take a long time to move up grades.

Many thanks
