Year 11 have been working on completing their GCSE Entry Level Humanities assessments. We are working towards a deadline of the first week in May to complete our coursework. Three main topics have been studied: World War Two, tectonic event and re-cycling.
The Word War Two topic has involved the pupils comparing their own lives with those of young people who lived through the War. We have looked at some of the sources used to learn about modern history. The students are familiar with primary and secondary sources.
The tectonic topic has seen the students profiling a major event such as an earthquake. We have been describing the effects on people and the environment.
Finally the re-cycling theme has looked at ‘fragile environments.’ This describes environments that are extremely sensitive to changes in temperature, air and water quality.
