In the geography department, we like to encourage pupils to investigate a topic that takes their interest and to present findings to the rest of their classmates. Not only does this help to build confidence but ‘geography presenters’ can expect to receive at least one star for their efforts. This term, Harry H in Year 6, presented an excellent slide show about Mount Etna in Sicily. Etna is an active volcano that he had visited during a family holiday in the summer. He combined his slideshow with samples of rocks, including dramatic crystals from volcano sites around the world. We were all enthralled with what he had discovered. Well done, Harry.
