JKM’s classes have been busy creating rainforest displays and showing how the different layers of the forests have different characteristics by thinking about animal adaptations. The students worked on an animal adaptation poster which they they linked to the structure of the rainforest displays.

Y9 were busy examining the food webs and ecosystems of the tropical rainforest in the Amazon basin this week, by creating a visual representation of the different ideas to display in the geography rooms.
Our annual visit to the Yorkshire Dales saw sunny weather again! 40 students and 5 staff saw the highs (of the limestone pavement on top of Malham Cove) and the lows (of Ingelborough cave system). The purpose was geography bonding right at the start of the GCSE course, and to see real examples of limestone scenery, the impact of tourism and how rural environments are changing. The group experienced intensive geography learning (studying till 10.30pm one night!) as well as the infamous team challenge and the ‘G’ factor competition.
