Limestone pavement

Thanks to SLN for the tip-off here. Nice limestone pavement footage and the S5/6 class will recognise someone who goes on and on even more than I do!

One day Victor The Volcano got into a fight with the snow and got really angry and decided to erupt. While doing this he blew his summit off and has left a crater on his body. As Victor errupted his ash from the cremation flowed through the air and landed on the ground which destroyed the area which made others have to evacuate and killing people which was a disaster. Victor's Bowels emptied when he died and caused a lava flow.
comment from Ms A - no comment really about the last sentence but Michael was very proud of his efforts.

Active Learning and a bit of theft

A great lesson from S4 this afternoon using the biscuit trading game. We had theft from Antarctica and some really hard trading from Hannah as Africa only had a crispbread to trade with but ended up with a few better things. A few only traded with their friends and then the mistrust factor wouldn't let them eat the biccies provided in case the teacher went crazy at them! When they realised there was no catch then they all disappeared apart from the one in Connor's pocket that was kept for the way home. A good introduction to the trade and aid unit I think. Apparently -the best ever Geography lesson.
