Dear Y9 at Tapton School.

I just wanted to thank you all very much for allowing me to come toyour YPG lesson today. I was really impressed i by how much you have done and how well you have don eit. You have clear;y begun to look at some interestinmg issues, but what it most important is that they are issues the YOU have decided you want to pursue. Your technological skils are great and I feel that they will help others who log into the web site to really access the work you have done and understand the issues you have uncovered.

May thanks to Mr Gaunt for the background work he has domne on this...lots of his own time planning and sorting out.

I do have some questions that you might like to use the forum to respond to...

How has this project helped you to understand your own geographies better?

What other bits of your own geographies would you also like to learn about?

How could you share your geogrpahies with other students in different schools or other parts of the world?

I look forward to reading more of your forum comments.

Best wishes

Once again many thanks

Hi folks, so this is the post for your homework that I set on Monday...
I'd like you to make a few comments on the following questions:

1.) Has your project helped you to understand a little more about your own personal geography?
2.) Do you think that your project has been successful - explain your thoughts.
3.) What do you think people from other parts of Sheffield would make of your project?

All the best, Mr G

1. It made me think a little about places like Netherthorpe and Upperthorpe, as they might not be as bad as they seem...

Jack Whittaker

2. I think it was successful but in all honesty it would've been better as a video, plus what we were researching was a little vague as well... Jack Whittaker
22 Apr 2009 - 18:07
3. I think they will like our project, but I think they will get better inspiration from other groups... But, you never know...

See you tomorrow...

1. It made me and Hannah feel that Netherthorpe is not as bad as what we thought
2. Yes we had lots of interesting information although we would have been more successful by presenting our work differently
3. I think that people from areas such as Lodge Moor would be interested in our project because they have probably only heard about the bad things to do with Netherthorpe

1) yeah,, because i know more about the areas that are surrounding where i live and stuff. and i now am more aware of how much vandalasim and graffitti affects certain areas and why(:

2) I think it was successfull as we learnt something(:

3) i think they would be interested. we are really happy with our project because it turned out very well and everything fitted in perfectly..Also we added a little humour and made it more interesting for the class(:
