KS3 BMI - Migration and Identity - Places that Made Me

KS3 BMI - Migration and Identity - Places that Made Me

KS3 BMI (Key Stage 3 But More Interesting) is a new series in Pocket Point Resources based on the material that I wrote for a textbook that Hodder Education was going to publish until the government moved the curriculum goalposts in 2011. This lesson gets a nine-lesson unit called Migration and Identity started. Students are encouraged to think about their own perceptions of migration and the physical and mental baggage that people carry around as they travel from place to place, often against their will. There's a personal migration journey mapping exercise as part of this lesson.

Indonesia Scheme of Work

Indonesia Scheme of Work

A short scheme of work on Indonesia. Targeted at low ability (SEN) year 7 but easily adapted (with some differentiation worksheet options included and suggestions offered). It could work well for primary students as well as KS3. This covered about 10 lessons and was easily extended by using additional tasks - again, some suggested. The unit explores the basic physical geography of Indonesia and looks at tectonic plates leading to a bit of research on the 2004 tsunami. The created some lovely work from this that resulted in a colourful display. The students also read Running Wild alongside completing this task.
