Mrs Howlett was pleased to see the following article about an uplift in the number of young people studying geography. It’s certainly true here at Hollygirt with 95% of pupils in Year 10 taking the subject this year! That makes it our most popular GCSE.
Read the article to find out some suggested reasons for this ‘tectonic shift’ including mention of Greta Thunberg and the wider political and environmental landscape that our young people are growing up in.
One of the GCSE groups went on a mini field trip yesterday up Elm Avenue and around Corporation Oaks. We used our phones to take 5 photographs that represent the landscape of Nottingham. When we got back to the classroom, we started our first field sketch from one of the photographs. We’re then going to annotate the landscape and describe it to the rest of the class.
