Enough of the bad jokes. To celebrate World Book Day, our students were given a task: listen to me (Mr Walder) describe a map and then recreate what they heard.
In their English classes our budding cartographers were given the challenge of making their maps both accurate and unique. This is a difficult balancing act, but the students excelled, and the maps they designed were phenomenal. I personally chose ten finalists, then the whole of Key Stage 3 voted to choose their favourite overall. The voters and designers were anonymous of course.
Overall, 232 students from Key Stage 3 voted! This is almost everyone in the entire three years, which again shows the level of interest and engagement in this challenge!
Fifth place: Stanislaw S. Stanislaw’s design incorporates a multitude of different materials to create a fun yet accurate 3D design. Very creative Stanislaw!
