Year 7 Geographers constuct contour models
All the Year 7 Geographers have been extremely busy over the past 3 weeks constructing their contour models. The Geography Department would like to thank Year 7 for making such a huge effort.
For this challenging task Year 7 had to produce a relief model with contour patterns and labels that indicate geographical landforms.
So for example ‘Westholme Island’ has ‘Beardwood Falls’, ‘Billinge Delta’ and ‘Lost Sock Valley’! Whilst Maya Mohan-Pillai’s ‘Animal Island’ has a ‘Toucan Terrace’ and ‘Meerkat Mountains’.
There were some very creative entries including Alice Couch’s ‘Dragon Island,’ with a ‘Smoke lagoon’ and ‘Claw coast’ and Issac Samuel’s entry featuring ‘The desolation of Smaug’ which beautifully illustrates the Hobbit’s unexpected journey.
There were several superb animal islands: Dog Island, Easter Bunny island, Fish island and Sam Goodall’s Tortoise Island complete with a ‘Hibernation harbour’ and ‘Dandelion Plain’.
The finalists’ contour models are on display outside the theatre and are tremendous.
Commended – Zoe Philp, Fiona Olsen, Georgiana Ewart-Jones, Abigail Lee, Ben Bulloch, Jake Perry, Benjamin Rooney, Isaac Samuel.
Highly Commended – Lydia Carr-Oddie, Grace Casper, Alice Couch, Maya Mohan-Pillai, Charlotte Cootes, Isabelle Shaw, Sam Goodall.
