From Russian …
Russian students in Year 8 undertook research on winter in Russia. A fabulous array of work was produced by the students. Clara Thorp and Grace West created PowerPoint presentations packed with interesting facts and photographs. Ellie Simpson made a wonderful poster telling what to pack for winter in Russia! Megan Hughes chose to write the information in her exercise book telling not only what clothes are needed to survive a Russian winter but also what winter activities are the most popular. Teah Gregory, Sasha Sole and Jessica Deasy produced amazing information leaflets adorned with brilliant hand drawn pictures. Well done, girls!
