Year 8’s visit the Energy from waste plant

A great trip for all the year 8’s who visited the plant.  A great deal of information was given and all students now have an assessment highlighting how the plant works and fits in to the wider environment.

Thanks to Jack and jo for showing us around and all the staff who gave up their time to make this possible.

Sketch map skills

Y8 have been carrying out a series of lessons looking at Billown Quarry and the impact it may have on the surrounding area. Part of the task involved creating a sketch map. Three good examples from students in 8DLC are shown here- can you work out where on the island the quarry is based on their map?
