This creative project is intended to be a welcome-starter activity to Year 7, but the recent virtual schooling has moved this activity to later in the year, so we would like to show some more pictures from our imaginative learners in this week's Geography lessons.
Here are some more examples, presented in virtual classrooms this week. From Ms Buckley and Mr Stimpson's classes: a scene from the Yucutan, Mexico showing the Aztec Chichen Itza temple, landscapes of rainforest, a visit to the far end of the planet to show us an icy cold Tundra arctic landscape - brrr!
From Ms Cuskin's class, we see two examples of Iceland, complete with a representation of the Aurora Borealis (northern lights) and a thought-provoking urban landscape of Tokyo, Japan.
From Ms Ellis' students - Horseshoe Bend, Colorado river, the Dachstein glacier, Austria and the Jinshanglin Great Wall, China. A great variety of Geography, topography and varied landscapes to ignite our young explorers' minds for their Geography journey into Key Stage 3 Geography!
Projects like this feed off imagination, whilst merging with learning to produce a creative outcome - all good skills to possess from Year 7!
Thanks once again to all the Year 7 students for working so hard on them, our department teachers for encouraging and guiding the pupils through it all, and of course our parents for helping out at home with sticky tape and glue (and no doubt having to help clear up paint and excess glue, apologies for that!) - but together we have all admirably overcome the obstacles that this year has presented - and our students have never backed down from the challenge of being imaginative, creative and ambitious!"
