IMPORTANT! This is now an ARCHIVE BLOG ONLY – this is not the current St Ivo spec.

Please note that this Blog is now only an archive.

This was for the OLD specification which is no longer a live specification – the resources here are NOT tailored to the current specification.

At St Ivo we are now studying the AQA GCSE.

There maybe some resources here on generic topics like coasts, rivers, tectonics which are useful so this blog is being kept live but will NOT be added to (students from St Ivo should see the department webpage www.geobytes.org.uk  our twitter feed @StIvoGeography , the department facebook page, and the St Ivo GCSE Schoology course for resources tailored specifically for the live specification.
