Years 7 and 8 Geography Projects on Sustainable Living Spaces
Geography is very proud to be the first subject to set project-based work for Years 7 and 8 this term. The challenge that we set was to first of all learn about sustainability issues by studying examples around the world. Following on from this students were asked to plan, design and build (out of recyclable materials) a sustainable house, town centre or city. We are absolutely delighted with the results! Years 7 and 8 have been so creative. Here are some examples of the models they have constructed. We’re sorry we can’t show all the models that have been created but well done to everyone. Good job!

Year 7 are studying a new unit on poetry this half term. Students were challenged to create a “found poem” using only words and phrases they could find in one particular place in their house. The kitchen seems to have served as great inspiration for lots of them!
