Geography Contour Models

The results of the Geography Department’s Contour Model Competition

All the Year 7 Geographers have been extremely busy constructing their contour models. The Geography Department would like to thank Year 7 for making such a huge effort.

For this challenging task they had to produce a relief model with contour patterns and labels that indicate geographical landforms. So for example Monkey Island boasted a ‘Primates Plain’ and ‘Horned Cliffs’ were found on Dragon Island. There were some very creative entries including a beautiful Lyre Island. The Lyre is a musical instrument dating back to ancient Greek times (2500BC) and looks rather like a small harp.


Congratulations to the following students:

In joint 3rd place:
Anna Heeley for Monkey Island, Eve Sulway for Dragon Island, Amy Tinniswood for Lyre Island and Elizabeth Whelan for her model of the Grand Canyon.

In 2nd place:
Millie Duxbury for her superb Bubonic Island in the shape of a rat!

In 1st place:
Nayha Williams for her extremely clever relief model of part of the Snowdonia National Park in Wales. This beautifully executed model shows wonderful attention to detail. Well done Nayha!
