3D Geography

Thanks to 3D Geography for featuring some of our students' work on their website! Their website features lots of great ideas for Geography inspired model making.

Funny Migration Cartoon

Last term GCSE students studied population and migration. As part of their learning about the topic we looked at satirical cartoons and they then had a go at creating their own piece of satire based on a news article about immigration. One student used a web app to create this short animated film.

Concept Mapping in Geography

When revising or reviewing topics in Geography a method often used is concept mapping. Students are given key terms, graphs, maps and photos relating to a topic and are then challenged to find and explain as many links as possible between them. This is a useful technique to use when revising a topic or developing understanding of a concept such as interdependence. This method can work well for individual revision or as a group activity. On a recent school open day students collaborated on a concept map about conflict in Sudan, the finished concept map can be seen on display in room 6.
