Students are learning more about the European Union during citizenship lessons, devising presentations aimed at their classmates. The Year 8 students were allocated one of the 27 EU countries to investigate. They are now collating data on all aspects including population details, manufacturing strengths, regional food variations, landmarks and general lifestyle information.
Teacher Mrs Strydom said: ‘The project is similar to a marketing campaign from a tourist board. The students will identify key facts about their country and use them in videos, interviews or posters that they will share with classmates. Some are already being quite creative with the project.’
Evan Limmage said: ‘I have to describe Croatia and I will make a video or slideshow on the computer.’ Jack Brigden, Jake Caratella and Tyler Crawford are all researching Italy, including its automotive industry. Jake said: ‘We are sourcing pictures of Italy, including typical Italian food and we are also going to focus on landmarks and cars such as the Ferrari F430 spider. We will produce a Powerpoint and take turns to present it.’
