Where the hell is Matt?

The Year 8 geographers have enjoyed watching "Dancing Matt" and finding out more about the huge range of places that he's visited.

You can find out more about Matt and his dancing on his website - but there are one or two rude words on there... you've been warned!

This is where it all began:

The first video sponsored by Stride:

And the second:

And most recently, in the run-up to the World Cup, Matt danced the Diski around South Africa:

For their homework this week, my Yr8s were asked to think about where in the world they would most like to dance with Matt and why... Here are the first two:

Charlie: The place I would like to dance with Matt is Paro, Bhutan because the scenery is very nice and it looks very interesting because all of the different colours.

Regan: I would dance with Matt in Andorra, because the views and heights make Andorra very relaxing in the summer. It is a very warm place in the summer and a very cold place in the winter. Andorra is well known for all the snow in the winter, the heights make Andorra very good for winter sports and the snow would make the views even more special.

Interesting choices gentlemen - I'll add some more as they arrive... And if you're not in my Yr8 Geography group, leave a comment and let us know where YOU would most like to dance with Matt, and why!

The homework you have given your students sound v.interesting. I'm not sure if I was set such type of homework when I was in Year 8. Thanks for sharing this blog.

For study skills, revision tips, time management, stress management, timetables, wall planners and many more resources please visit my blog: It would be great if you could pass it onto your students and they find the resources there helpful and useful.
