Year 7 Geographers get creative
For this annual Geography competition, Year 7 pupils have been grappling with the intricacies of contour patterns and layer shading, with everyone making a huge effort with their models. The standard this year has been incredibly high and there have been some extremely imaginative themes for the islands.
1st Place – Charlotte Milnes
The seasonal and beautifully executed Holly and Berry Island. This festive entry was delightfully constructed and shows wonderful attention to detail. It was decorated with a Tinsel Tarn (a glacial lake), Noel Heights, Prickle Point and of course, a Lake Yuletide.
2nd Place – Kiersten Keogh
This mysterious phantom isle, located in the Caribbean, is ”˜an island that cannot be found except by those who already know where it is’. The wonderful Isla de la Muerta, or Island of the Dead was inspired, of course, by the Pirates of the Caribbean.
3rd Place – Ben Tinniswood
This ingenious entry called Silverstone Island sported a Hamilton Hill, Alonson Estuary and a very realistic black race track built into the hillside.
