During the Easter holidays, Year 7 pupils at the School were set an
explosive challenge and the winners have been announced recently.
As part of their Geography studies this year, pupils have covered
volcanoes from many different perspectives and had the opportunity to
create their model. The pupils were tasked with building a working model
of a volcano out of suitable material. The finished models were built
of many different materials and in Geography lessons this term, the
pupils have had a great deal of fun watching all the eruptions.
Rhiann Waddams, Head of Geography explained, ‘The pupils gave the
project a great deal of thought, made detailed plans and then set to
work. The competition proved very difficult to judge as the standard was
extremely high. Marks were awarded for originality, attention to
detail and whether it erupts!
The winners, who enjoyed chocolate prizes, across the 4 Year 7
classes were: Bruce Buglass, Charlotte Davies, Eve Davies, Shannon
Davies, James Evans, Dominic Freer-Carmichael, Elliott Gwilt, Elinor
Howarth, Edward Latham and Jaimie Wakefield.
