  7. 7. Just like in S2, we study crowded human landscapes<br />
  8. 8. and empty physical landscapes<br />
  9. 9. First to Loch Lomond and its National Park, a wonderful physical landscape to study<br />
  10. 10. The islands in Loch Lomond mark an important Scottish geographical boundary – separating Highland Scotland from Lowland Scotland<br />
  11. 11. Not just the physical landscape, but the land uses are special and worthy of study, including the golf course where fees are up to £40,000 per year.<br />
  12. 12. Tourism is a major land use and below is officially the most popular attraction in Scotland – Loch Lomond Shores<br />
  13. 13. Landscapes change all the time and we need to be up-to-date. We look at controversial developments, such as here at Loch Sloy – and if you are wondering what is controversial ….<br />
  14. 14. This is what is controversial – some say that the hydro-electric power station spoils the view<br />
  15. 15. And there are many other big issues. After the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street, Glen Douglas below is the 3rd most important target for any country wishing to attack Britain. Why?<br />
  16. 16. Once you have understood that part of the geography of Scotland, we next go to somewhere a little different<br />
  17. 17. We are off to the seaside, ice-creams and Punch and Judy<br />
  18. 18. This is Dorset, a geologist’s paradise – and, therefore, our paradise as well<br />
  19. 19. especially Lyme Regis, the fossil capital of the UK<br />
  20. 20. But Dorset has other natural attractions as well, which need to be studied and explained.<br />
  21. 21. But the weather isn’t always nice, otherwise you would not get those landforms<br />
  22. 22. It also has the 4th most expensive area of land in the world, after New York, London and Hong Kong – the Sandbanks peninsula <br />
  23. 23. And then straight to Paris,and of all the exciting sights there, we are going to be looking at .....<br />
  24. 24. bicycles – you can work out why<br />
  25. 25. We even try to work out the meaning of all the road signs<br />
  26. 26. and, of course, the happiest place in the world – another controversial land use to study<br />
  27. 27. And into the countryside to look at some very famous rural land uses surrounding Paris<br />
  28. 28. The vineyards of Champagne<br />
  29. 29. Another exciting geographical study this year – these are not just any cows<br />
  30. 30. Their milk is used in making the famous Brie cheese, just east of Paris<br />
  31. 31. Off next to study more exotic places – a city of 18 million people<br />
  32. 32. So it can become a little crowded - we find out why so many people want to live in Mumbai<br />
  33. 33. And to the south of Mumbai is the village of Nitte, where our partner school is found<br />
  34. 34. We look at farming around Nitte<br />
  35. 35. And how to plant rice in flooded fields on hillsides<br />
  36. 36. By March we have travelled at hurricane speed to Central America.It’s time to look at different types of natural disaster.<br />
  37. 37. We investigate what causes hurricanes and especially the causes and devastating effects of Hurricane Mitch<br />
  38. 38. Caused not just by the wind but, as here, the appalling floods which submerged most of Honduras<br />
  39. 39. We look at accurate and less accurate ways of forecasting hurricanes.<br />
  40. 40. And then further west to Mt. St. Helens, and the causes and effects of its eruption in 1980<br />
  41. 41. and we finish the course quite appropriately with the geography of death<br />
  42. 42. and why people live longer in some areas of the world than others<br />
  43. 43. Sometime at the end of the year there is a field-trip to either … <br />
  44. 44. Iceland or, shown below, Switzerland or maybe somewhere else<br />
  45. 45. What about a bike ride to an old lake in Bolivia, now just salt?<br />
  46. 46. So Geography in S3 is similar to that in S2. If you like Geography in S2 you will enjoy S3. If you don’t, you won’t. But it won’t be boring. We don’t do Boring .<br />
  47. 47. Especially this boring – in Mexico<br />
  48. 48. We don’t think Geography in S3 will be too painful, unless ..<br />
  49. 49. Unless, you are inclined to be lazy<br />
