Year 7 have been looking at the beliefs of North American Indians, beginning with an extract from the film, ‘Pocahontas’. Students explored how this expressed an understanding of the environment, especially with reference to animals. We focused on the use of totem poles, which were used to display their history, cultural values and spiritual values.

Students were challenged to use their knowledge to produce a family totem pole. Some of the work was exceptional, including this effort from Hubert!

Our students had a great time visiting the Caldera volcano, drinking different mineral waters from the springs, cooking eggs in the volcanic heat, swimming at the hotspot springs and spent time on the ocean on a whale and dolphin watching expedition. The experience helped to bring the geography they have learnt about in the classroom to life.
