Thoughts before the Easter break.

Spent a day this week in the Peak District, visited Peak Cavern.

Conducted velocity measurements using flow meters.

And mourned damage to the most inappropriate fieldwork bag ever. 😉

Talking of fieldwork, picked up on a tip off from Alan Parkinson about the Enhancing Fieldwork Blog.

I did some online INSET about my use of technology via Google Talk to another school in Derbyshire. A first for me, sat at home in the backroom. I didn’t really do it justice, it was hard to speak about ideas without the visual prompts available and it was hard to strike up a dialogue. I hope some of the colleagues took at least one idea away. I have to say thanks to the Year 10 ICT leaders, who managed my session, without them it would have been a massive mess!

We finished and dispatched our sample for the controlled assessment for the CEA Geography Spec. Thanks to Graeme Eyre for writing three posts concerning the specification, derived from a recent support meeting for English centres.

Congratulations to David Rogers who’s Long Shore Drift video won one of the prizes on the Dream Teachers video competition.

Had a request about a crime scheme I wrote nearly eight years ago, and lead me to rediscover Geointeractive.

Also said a goodbye to one of my education mentors who retired this week, enjoy the rest Mr Warrington, a true gentleman. I shall never forget my interview grilling. 🙂

After what seems an endless term, I’m off to have a rest. Happy Easter.
