Travel and Tourism -
It has been a busy half term in Geography, including two trips into London for our A Level students. 17 A Level Travel and Tourism students, undertaking research for their customer service unit, were warmly welcomed by the Park Lane Hilton Hotel. Travelling up 28 floors, in one of the few buildings overlooking Buckingham Palace, they got fantastic views over London before looking around the £4000 a night Royal Suite. A trip to the Natural History Museum followed to conduct data collection through a Mystery Shopper Survey.
Year 13 Geographers -
Our Year 13 students also visited London this month to look at regeneration. The trip included a look around the London Docklands Museum, a quick stop at Trinity Buoy Wharf and a visit to The Crystal sustainability exhibition.
Volcano and Waterfall Models -
We have been overwhelmed by the quality of the volcano and waterfall models that our Year 8 and 9 students have created as part of their work on volcanoes and rivers this term. The standard has been very high and photos of many of the models can be found on the department website www.geobytes.org.uk and our facebook page (St Ivo School Geography Department).
Year 11 Revision
Our Year 11 students geographers are now focusing their homework effort on revision in preparation for the mocks and we would like to take this opportunity to remind them of the bespoke revision guides which can be purchased from the business centre and the many online supporting resources (including interactive past papers and self check revision cards) available on our blog www.geobytesgcse.wordpress.com.
New Initiatives in the Geography Department
Finally, this term has seen the launch of a number of new initiatives in the department; the launch of our Year 7 and 8 geography club, who have hosted their first ‘geography’ film evening and are now exploring natural disasters; a new sixth form geography ambassadors scheme and a weekly drop in ‘clinic’ to support Year 10 /11 students with homework and revision.
