Sketch map skills

Y8 have been carrying out a series of lessons looking at Billown Quarry and the impact it may have on the surrounding area. Part of the task involved creating a sketch map. Three good examples from students in 8DLC are shown here- can you work out where on the island the quarry is based on their map?

Y8 rocking with the rock map

“How is the Isle of Man formed?” is the key question for Y8 this term- and students has been learning about different rocks and their uses. The isle of man rock map in the SNHS community garden is a special kind of map, one made out of different examples of rocks found all over the island, so Y8 have been a bit like Finn McCooll and have taken GIANT steps all over the island.

Well done to the chaps that had to collect all the rocks to make this map!

Sketch maps with Y7

The music on the video may well have been very annoying, but the students have produced some excellent sketch maps based on Mr Macgregor’s route between the sites. Well done Georgie in 7CLA for producing this fab piece of mapwork- well done!

Excellent observational skills :)

Malham trip 2015 with the year 10’s

23 year 10 students who have just started the iGCSE course enjoyed a 3 day visit to Malham in the Yorkshire Dales. Activities included an upland farm visit and village study on the Thursday. The Friday students completed a walk looking at the tourist attractions of Janets Foss, Gordale Scar and Malham Cove. After a quick visit to Malham Tarn the students then discovered Ingleton to compare the village with Malham. In the evening teams of six were given challenging tasks culminating in the now famous “Geog Factor” where teams showed off their imagination to present information on their findings from the trip. The final day was very varied from a trip into Inglebrough Cave, to studying Urban Zones in Liverpool.

A great trip was had by all and thanks to the four teachers who gave their time and energy to making such a successful trip including: Mr MacGregor, Mr Mason, Mr Watt and Miss Laporte.IMG_6189
