Once you have collected all your data, you need to write your letter to the Head Teacher. I have attached both the powerpoint from the lesson so that you remember what you are aiming to achieve. The word document is a writing frame that you may base your letter on or partly use or if you wish, ignore and do it in your own way.

First Year 11 homework of the year – Convection Currents

While you are doing Controlled Assessment in class, we need to get ahead on the next topic which is mainly about Volcanoes and Earthquakes. Please watch the video on the link below and answer the 6 questions from the “Think” option and the one task from the “Dig Deeper” area. You need to have your answer from the think written down in full sentences so you can revise from it. The Dig Deeper task I hope is self explanatory. The video can be found HERE
