This is a history based topic where we will be the looking at the Roman occupation of York, an Anglo-Saxon mystery to solve from the seventh century, the largest battle ever fought on English soil took place at Marston Moor, a few kilometres outside of York as well as examining two important effects of the coming of the industrial age to York in
the early 1800s: the influence of the arrival of the railway and the growth of large factories in which products were manufactured for the first time using steam-driven machinery!
We will first look at introducing the concept of ‘mountain’ through an investigation. We will then focus on the location and formation of the world’s most significant ranges of fold mountains. After this, we will explore the legend of Mallory and Irvine, together with the achievements of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. We will then apply a wide range of geographical skills including map and satellite interpretation.
We will recognise, describe and explain the key geographical features of the Westman Islands region of Iceland and the island of Hiemaey in particular. Next we will compare and contrast the physical and human geography of Vestmannaeyjar and explain how volcanoes form. Finally, we will understand how and why the environment of Hiemaey has changed over time and reach conclusions and make judgements about the positive and negative impact of these changes on the ways of life of the people of Hiemaey!
