Geography is important because with out it we will never overcome the serious global issues we face today and tomorrow. Geography knowledge is power SIMON BEEVERS
* Have you ever wondered at the power of the sea, an earthquake, gale force winds or how bush fires can devastate great areas of land? * These are all natural forces that effect humans existence. To exist we require the 4 elements of earth- to grow food, fire- to keep warm, water to drink and air- to breathe. * What happens when these elements become a natural force, who controls the elements and how have humans accounted for these disasters in the past is it a natural or super natural force. * This module has a geographical focus so in the assignment phase you will be developing your geographical skills and knowledge to show how the elements affect our planet and the people who live there.
Each of the 4 elements connect to each other and this idea forms the basis of the unit Elements in Geography. The Philippines is a country that is affected by these element.

You will use a story to explore through physical theatre through use of proxemics, levels, movement and body language. You will then learn how to strengthen your physical theatre to add sound effects. * How to use narration and thought-tracking to inform an audience, share characters views and to highlight different moments in time. * How to look at modern´ interpretations of the four elements´ and how they effect the environment through realistic news reports. How will you direct a realistic scene? * How to use different drama mediums to make your work more creative and expressive.

History -You will learn * Slavery and the Slave trade triangle and the abolition of Slavery within the British Empire. * How to analysis different reasons for why the abolition of Slavery was granted. * To successfully organise and communicate your reasons and judgement into an extended piece of writing.

The Islands represent Fire (volcanoes), Water (oceans and storms), Earth (the islands) and Air (cyclones) with grace and excitement.
Over this topic you have looked at many different interpretations of the 4 elements and the relationship between them and other issues such as natural disasters. In Creative Arts you have done this through dance interpretation, looking at events from the Icelandic volcano eruption to the Indonesian tsunami, you have looked at making drama more creative using masks and materials and you have looked at expressing feeling and emotion through song in music. In Technology you have looked at using the 4 elements in your design work and interpreting the elements using herbs and spices in food tech. In Humanities you have looked at how one place, The Philippines, can reflect each of the elements; how the world´s religions represent them and how one disease, the black death, is also a true representation of the 4 elements. What should be done? You will work in teams of around 4 to produce parts of an exhibition piece´ on one of the 4 elements which you have been given.
