On Monday 30 July, The Close was transformed and took on a carnival atmosphere as the Form II girls constructed edible 3D islands from a designated contour map. This group exercise has become a tradition in Geography when an integral component of the mapwork section comes alive. The islands that the girls produced were assessed on shape and also accuracy of slopes and landforms using an online rubric. Marks were allocated for creativity and, judging from the original themes, this years’ group did not disappoint. The girls were encouraged to dress in keeping with their themes and some outfits were ingenious. Each group had to upload their rationale, videos and photographs to Google Drive and the girls also voted for their favourite group’s island online.
