Lessons from the 2010 floods on the Atlantic coast (Xynthia) and in the Var

11 Sep

Two natural disasters that occurred in 2010 are etched into our memories because of their
dramatic consequences.
Storm Xynthia reached the French coast during the night of 27-28 February 2010,
causing sudden and extensive marine flooding. The human toll was very heavy: 29 deaths concentrated
in La Faute-sur-Mer in the Vendée and 12 deaths in Charente-Maritime.

Launched at teacher training days in June 2014 and developed by the former Devon County schools Geography advisor these inspiring learning enquiries develop further understanding of the concepts introduced in the primary pack, and are aimed for use by Key Stage 3-4 pupils. All the resources (maps, forms, photos, film clips, data etc) required to deliver the programme in the clasroom are included on a supporting DVD. The pack contains the following enquiries :-
1. How can flood risk and habitat change be managed most effectively in the Exe Estuary ?
2.What coastal processes are occurring at Dawlish Warren and how can they be most effectively managed in the future ?
3.Why does the Parish Council at Starcross want people in the village to develop more of a Dutch mentality?
4. Brownsea Island – when is doing nothing actually doing something ?
5. How do people benefit from Studland Bay ?
6. How is Studland Bay likely to change in the future ?

Important Information for schools wishing to visit Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve.

Please be aware that Dawlish Warren NNR is a highly protected and sensitive site for wildlife. Teignbridge District Council welcome schools that wish to visit, but would ask that you let them know when you intend to visit (01626 863980) to ensure that there are no conflicts with other groups or their management work on site.
Groups undertaking vegetation transects need to avoid areas of scrub (where birds may be nesting) and must not take any soil samples.
The site rangers offer an education service to primary, secondary and university groups studying the site.Thank you.

LiCCo Primary School Learning Pack

16 Jun

These educational materials are designed for key stage 2 (ages 7 to 11) and focus on the Exe Estuary and Poole Harbour. The pack is broken into a number of self contained learning enquiries to provide a local focus for the national curriculum. Issues covered include coastal environment, natural coastal processes which shape the coastline, climate change and weather, coastal management, flood risk, wildlife, habitats, use of the coast, stakeholders and how to adapt to coastal change. Resources have been compiled by a specialist schools education advisor and they make use of everything from map extracts to historic paintings and data sets to funny film clips.

The materials consist of a printed 120 page book and an accompanying DVD which contains everthing you need to deliver the enquiries in the classroom. These have been rolled out via free teacher training days in Devon and Dorset in May and June 2014. Many of the materials are locally tailored and so will be especially valuable to schools in these areas. However, there are some key messages and a good deal of content which can be widely applied and used by all primary teachers.

There’s a huge amount of information so we’ve broken it down into sections here for you to download :-

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 5th Report

5 Nov

The 5th IPCC Assessmnet report states that global mean sea level will continue to rise during the 21st century. Under all scenarios the rate of sea level rise will very likely exceed that observed during 1971–2010 due to increased ocean warming and increased loss of mass from glaciers and ice sheets.

The report states that the rate of rise could be 8-16mm per year by 2081-2100. Sea levels could be between 260 and 980mm higher than 2005 levels by 2100, depending on how much greenhouse gas we emit between now and then (the scenario used) and depending on the percentile figure taken.

The full report and summary for policy makers can be found at :-
