CF Geography

For the past 5 years I have taught geography alongside my best friend and colleague. During these years our philosophy was to inspire and get our pupils hooked on geography. We overhauled our schemes of work starting with GCSE down to KS3. We taught lessons that were both imaginative and combined traditional geography with topics considered outside of the box. Ranging from blood diamonds, pirates in Somalia and the emergence of mexican cartels. Feel free to sample a taste of our hard work.

This is a revision booklet for the Restless Earth topic in AQA A spec. The booklet has a repeat remind revise approach and is very effective in embedding key processes and case study content. This booklet gives small pieces of information and then immediately has an activity for pupils to complete. It has shown excellent results in exams for pupil who have not studied restless earth since the start of year 10. It can also be used to recap on certain sections. I find best to print out in a small A5 booklet.

Climate Change Scheme of work - outstanding ofsted

This is a topic that I have updated recently as a result of significant media attention. The lessons follow a logical structure and offer imaginative and creative ideas to help pupils understand all corners of the topic. Not only do pupils understand the causes and effects, they examine evidence as to whether or not climate change is real or a hoax. The lessons are as follows: Lesson 1- Intro to climate change Lesson 2- Climate Change, real or hoax Lesson 3- The Ice Age Debate Lesson 4- Worst Case Scenario Lesson 5,6- Impacts of Climate Change Lesson 7- Impacts on the UK This content is suitable for year 9 but is taught to a high level and is more than suitable to use for GCSE.
