Christian Keil Host: Christian has been a Geography teacher for 9 years, teaching year groups from KS3 to KS5. He specialised in outdoor fieldwork prior to teaching. Alongside teaching, for the past 3 years, Christian has been an Examiner which allows him to understand exactly what is expected of students to receive the grades they wish to achieve.

As a river moves through it's path it can pick up and deposit parts of the land along the way. In this class, students will look at the processes of transportation along a river. This will include examination of how material moves along the river and where it comes from. There will be a specific focus on the processes of traction, saltation, suspension and solution. This is a great class for students in Years 10/11 who want to truly understand the terminology involved and be able to apply it with confidence to assessments!
