Christmas 2017


Key Stage 4 Christmas homework

Revise, revise, revise!  Your recent GCSE Paper 2 practice was generally done to a high standard and most of you seem well prepared.  Make sure you all read my detailed individual comments on your papers, as I have tried to give guidance whether your wrong answers were due to gaps in knowledge or poor focus in thinking through the question.  Please revise case studies ready for the mock exams.

Paper 1 topics

With Paper 1 you have three sections, A, B and C and you must choose one question from each.  Section A has questions on Population and Migration; Section B has questions on Rocks and Soils/Natural Hazards and Drainage Basins and Rivers; Section C has questions on Settlement and Industry/Tourism.

Paper 2 topics

In addition to the standard Map Section, there are questions on: Settlement; Coasts; Tourism; Plate Tectonics; and Migration.

Use the past papers to do some further map practice.

Teide 5

And remember: Geography is not just about exams.  Watch out for Geography in the news this holiday.  Volcanoes, migration and refugee issues, trade talks, climate change: it’s all out there!  Geography connects you with the world.


About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.
