This weeks commendations go to Krishav and Kirat for being awesome!
OUR RECENT WORK:
The form 6’s had to create a visual information station on an International River and also recreate the Water Cycle to support their current Geography topic.
Lucinda captivated everyone’s imagination with her amazing project on the River Yangtze. It was a stunning visual explosion of clever facts interwoven into the fabric of her excellent artistic skills and represents the essence of the project to an extremely high standard! Lucinda was also very well versed on all areas of her river of choice and could answer many questions posed by her peers. Everyone marvelled at Lucinda’s excellent artistic skills and again she has created something worthy of the WOW factor!
William carefully crafted, designed and finally created the most creative and detailed model of the Amazon River with clever ‘popsicles’ of information dotted around his canopy of trees, designed to give a real-life effect and feel for the density of the Amazon jungle. William was extremely confident in his delivery and animated while delivering his speech and everyone enjoyed his clever water cycle experiment which had the entire class captivated and enthralled throughout!
Danae’s project board was an explosion of information that had everyone entertained from start to finish. She cleverly entwined her Water Cycle explanation into the life of her river and her visual facts and details were exquisitely drawn. She presented well and her artistic flair was celebrated again in this excellent project.
Three masterpieces of independent projects that show just what tremendous talent we have in Form 6! 🌟
