After school GCSE Geography revision continues on Wednesday 19th March with River Landscapes. Mr Chambers will be in N16 and Mr Nunn N19 running Higher Revision and Miss Raine will be in N15 running Foundation Revision.
Resources from the first six revision sessions on Population, Tourism, Settlement, Economic Change and Tectonic Landscapes, Coastal Landscapes have been published on the Year 11 Schoology pages – students just need to log in.
We hope you have had a great half term and have had some success with your revision. Our formal 10 week department revision programme starts this week. The sessions will run down in the Geography Department every Wednesday after school and the timetable is available here.
We will be posting revision ideas, reminders and materials here on the blog as well as our twitter feed @StIvoGeography and department facebook page.
The unit 1 exam is rapidly approaching. Tonight’s revision session we mapped out and revised the Challenges to the Planet section of the exam (see below). If you were unable to make the session the resources are available on the Year 11 Schoology page (ask your teacher for the access code if you have not signed up).
Make sure you learn your examples and place specific detail to back up your answers!
With the exams fast approaching, remember all of the GCSE Geography course materials are available online for St Ivo School Geography Yr 11 students via Schoology, including PowerPoints, video clips and links to revision materials from the afterschool programme. Please see your Geography teacher for the access code.
Your revision is well underway – remember…
Please make sure you make good use of your notes, your three revision guides and your past paper booklets. There is also the Year 11 Schoology GCSE Geography course page with all the PowerPoints and resources we have used throughout the two years, please see your Geography teacher for the access code (this is only available to St Ivo students I’m afraid).
