Pupils spent a lot of home-time making 3D models of the Water Cycle recently. In true TBS style, our pupils never stop exploring new ways to learn and by displaying the models on their desks, and circulating the whole class, our learning environment became a mini-exhibition, thus opening up new avenues of creative learning for each student.
The students then asked each other about their models, each creator describing how their model represents the hydrological cycle, responsible for the majority of weather on Earth.
It seems then that, aside from responsible recycling, there are a multitude of uses for old kitchen rolls, marbles to represent water, plastic tubes, cotton buds, papier-machê, crêpe-paper - and old cardboard shoe boxes!
All of the terrific models can be viewed until the Easter Holidays at the end of the Secondary corridor outside the Geography rooms."
