    Geography: Year 6 Learn from Lower Sixth 

    Senior School students share their knowledge of plate tectonics with Prep pupils.

    In a jointly collaborative task between the Prep and the Senior School, Lower 6th Form pupils created a lesson to teach to their Year 6 fellow Geographers all about plate tectonics.

    Our Lower Sixth Geographers studied plate tectonics as a timetabled extension and enrichment topic (known as a '7th period' task) and then distilled their knowledge into materials and activities suitable for year 6 children at our Prep School. Year 6 have just finished looking at volcanoes and earthquakes, so this was ideal revision and extension of their knowledge. 

    Mrs Wilson, Senior School Geography teacher said "With sound organisation, the class of 11 6th Formers worked together to decide which topics they would tackle. Excellent teamwork ensured a pool of engaging, creative and educational activities which the children will remember for some time to come."

    Mrs Bridgeford, Geography co-ordinator at the prep said "Many thanks for such an informative and interesting session. The students worked brilliantly together and our children really enjoyed it. I was hugely impressed with the confidence and poise of your pupils. The activities were well planned and delivered in an interesting way. Hopefully we can arrange something similar for a different year group in the future!"
