Hazards in Nature

Posted by: Unknown on 14-09-2017

Phew!  What a week!  A great deal of our focus topic for all classes has been about the hazards currently affecting the world!  Hurricanes Irma and Harvey wreaking havoc in the Caribbean and USA, a major earthquake in Mexico… headline grabbing events and real stories of Mother Nature vs humankind.

Such events provide a wealth of information as they unfold on the news and can create very useful case studies for GCSE and A-Level students.  In years 9, 11 and 12 we are examining these events in detail to understand just what causes them, the scale of the effects, how vulnerable people are, and how they adapt to live with such incredible forces of nature.
