Geography in the News

UKS2 held a debate into the issue of whether the HS2 train link is a good idea.  In our groups we were given different roles such as wildlife activists, residents of houses due to be knocked down or passengers who travel to London regularly.  We had to consider within our new roles what the positive and negatives would be for the building of HS2.  We then had to debate with other groups our reasons for and against the issue.

We are going to be finding out more over the next few weeks all about the issue of climate change and why it is a topic that has been featured in the news a lot recently.  We begun by thinking about what we already knew about climate change as fact, what we think we know and what we would like to know.  We discussed who we thought was responsible for climate change and how it made us feel.  There were many insightful and interesting contributions to kick-start our discussions.

HS2 train link- a good thing?



UKS2 really enjoyed learning about the planned HS2 rail link in Geography lessons.  They found out all about the plans for new super-fast trains that will link London to Manchester and Leeds.  The trains will have a top speed of 250 miles an hour, cutting journey times in half.  Many people support this plan, however we also heard about the many people who are against the plans as they believe it could ruin precious greenbelt land.  We spent time in groups sorting out the pros and cons for the HS2 link and then wrote a letter to the government outlining our own views on the matter.
