Y10 2012 Olympics developing a brownfield site

This week we have started to study the development of the  2012 Olympic site in Stratford.  We have focused on the issues of clearing a brownfield site and the impact on local residents.  As I teach a particular unit such as Earthquakes and Volcanoes there will often be an eruption or something in the news that week.  That is the joy of teaching a very current subject however I didn’t expect to see such evidence of the site clearance and impacts it had on London this week.  We managed to see the black cloud from the fire that broke out on the site this Monday from our window in the Geography room this week. 

Here are some other images from the fire

Some of you wanted to see the channel four report on how clearance of possible radioactive waste impacted on the local residents.

I will post some google earth files next week showing images and maps of the site to help you with this case study further.
