Holderness Coast- Key Stage Three /Four SOW

Holderness Coast- Key Stage Three /Four SOW

This is a brand new scheme of work on coats which is ideal for KS3 and weaker KS4 students. it is completely place based on the Holderness Coast. It has key word glossary exercises for many of the lessons. The research is current, relevant and comes from reputable sources such as Natural England and SSSIs. There are a wide variety of GCSE questions. My steps to success breakdown of questions is a top class tool in helping students breakdown what is required to successfully answer high tariff questions. There are many images and videos. There is a very good DME exercise on protecting the coast as well. Lesson list Lesson One/Two- Geomorphic processes including weathering/erosion/mas movement/longshore drift. Lesson 3/4- Waves including difference between constructive/destructive waves and their impact on Holderness Lesson 5/6 landforms of erosion at Holderness including Flamborough Head and Bridlington Bay (geology maps included). Lesson 7 landforms of deposition featuring Spurn Head. Lesson 8 why is the Holderness Coast so vulnerable to cliff collapse? Lesson 9- what is the impact of cliff collapse at Holderness? Lesson 10 How is the Holderness Coast protected - hard/soft engineering Lesson 11-DME where should we protect at Holderness Lesson12/13- What is human impact at Holderness including SSSIs/climate change/sea defences

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

The dissected sandstone plateau of the Southern Lost City of Limmen National Park provide a distinctive habitat for a range of native wildlife. This unit has a focus on survival and adaptation to this area. The Limmen National Park was proclaimed in 2012 and research is in its early years. Those with an interest in the natural environment who ventured into the area when it was used as for cattle raising (pastoral leases) made lists of wildlife observed. In the environment within and around the Southern Lost City they began to record that certain native species were increasingly difficult to sight. Coinciding with these observations were the increasing sightings of intruding feral animals such as cane toads, feral cats and feral pigs. Their conclusion was that the feral intruders were having an affect on the survival rates of native wildlife by habitat modification and food resource reduction. Future research into this situation will shed further light on these impacts. Of particular concern were the reductions of 3 species covered in this unit. They have reached the "endangered" list and were heading for extinction within this area. Of particular concern were sightings of feral cats. Though not yet numerous in this park their numbers were likely to increase and their efficient hunting and killing skills would place native bird and small mammal species under threat. The feral cat situation is covered in another unit entitled "The feral cat menace - impact on Australian native wildlife". This unit can stand alone as an introduction to the impact of feral animals on native wildlife. It cat be used to introduce the topic of tha considerable problem caused by the increasing population and spread of feral cats which are regarded as the top predator affecting native Australian wildlife. That unit will also consider programmes carried out by the AWC (Australian Wildlife Conservancy) to conserve and protect native wildlife of Australia and avoid (if possible)adding names to the list of species that have become extinct. The worksheets (colour and black and white) are included so that hard copies can be distributed.

Mountains - Geographical Land forms: Blue Mountains, Sydney

Mountains - Geographical Land forms: Blue Mountains, Sydney

Mountains - Geographical Landforms: Blue Mountains - This resource has a notebook and a worksheet. This notebook looks at mountains and their features. It focuses on Blue Mountains in Sydney, but you can easily change that feature to your local mountains. It assists students in using maps. It has a fun activity of dressing Ed Sheeran for walking in the mountains. I also used that page and placed my students’ heads on the body, so that it was personalised so they could be dressed on the interactive whiteboard and on paper to walk in the mountains. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match aspects of the mountain as well as a writing sheet. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) for teaching life skills but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy. There is an accompanying visual symbol board to print.
