I’m sure there isn’t much OFSTED winning progress, but I just like the effort that has gone into this piece.
Inspired by a mini-movie put together by Victoria Ellis of river scenes and quotes, Year 8 put together a short poem reflecting their emotions about rivers. We’d appreciate your feedback, and, if willing, your location.
A new selection of poems, we would appreciate people taking time to leave a comment on our work.
Inspired by a Victoria Ellis Enya backed movie, we got in touch with our humanist side and produced poems about rivers.
Here are three student contributions.
Myself and the students would really appreciate feedback.
KS3 Geography has been a little more pedestrian, year 7 I’m working on new transition materials, so started by looking at different maps and what they had in common, we then drew maps from memory of our home area. I’ve now added a transition page to Radical Geography.
In year 8 will started to look at rivers, I use Victoria Ellis’s rivers introductory video (Nice bit of Enya..) as a starter, we then produce a poem entitled the ‘River’. Reminds me that I want to record some of them and put them online- one for this week to try…
In year 9 we started weather and climate, we considered the difference between the two terms, and then began to produce maps of the average summer and winter temperatures across the British Isles. Good traditional stuff!
Added some new rivers resources. I think something similar has been done with Kung Fu, but I like aerobics- fits nicely with my pacifist tendencies.
Just need a dance track now.
After going through the different processes I ask students to reproduce them in cartoon form, if available we use MS Paint, some prefer the ‘old skool’ way.
Similar idea to the rainfall aerobics.
