5 lessons, originally delivered to a Year 9 class who were studying 'Touching the Void' with their main teacher, this mini scheme of work explores battling extreme conditions. Using 'Top Gear' and the Polar special as a starting point, the students write a journal entry reflecting Richard Hammond's experience, having analysed an extract from his autobiography. Other activities include researching extreme sports and writing to persuade.
Youtube links have been included in the comments section of selected slides, directing teachers to clips from the 'Top Gear' episode.
