Wonderful Work  |  Year 9 Geographer Fern's Fact Sheet on Rainforests

Well done, Fern.

Wonderful Work  |  Year 9 Geography Work on the European Union

As part of the Geography Department's 'learning log' assignments, some pupils have chosen to focus on the European Union.  The subject is currently a hot topic in the media and this gave pupils a chance to independently research and make up their own minds about the role of the European Union. Pupils were asked to present both sides of the argument in an imaginative way. Our Wonderful Work page showcases some excellent work by Millie Harris in Year 9 which exemplifies how our geographers in Ysgol Harri Tudur/Henry Tudor school really enjoy getting involved in current affairs and 'geography in the news'.
