Hello Class 8.

Today there are a few things to watch/listen to, and one map to draw.

Firstly, watch the screen recording video below, and if you have access to Google Map/Earth then have an explore yourself...

Secondly, listen to the first part of Chapter 1, and then the summary of the rest of the chapter...

TTV Chapter 1 Summary

This is the first few pages of Chapter 1 if you prefer to read it yourself.

Please add Peru to a map of South America, and mark in the Andes, and the location of Siula Grande. You can use this map as a base if you are able to print or trace it, and stick into your book.

Wednesday 6th October

Hello Class 8,

I hope you had a good rest from your studies over the holidays.

With your resource pick- up on Monday there should have been a blank green exercise book that is for this subject. If there are maps or pictures to draw, you will need to use blank paper and stick them into the book.

For our weekly class this term we will be studying the story of "Touching the Void" by Joe Simpson. We don't have a class set of the book, so you won't need to read the whole book, I will bring the story to you.

If you can ask your parents to photograph and email me any work you have completed that would be very helpful (my email address is at the top of this page). There will usually be a couple of options for ways to complete written tasks so choose the option that is right for you.

I will drop into your zoom meetings occasionally if you have any questions, otherwise your parents can contact me via email.

Listen to the audio and open the document below for this weeks task. 

Good Luck :)
