Good luck to all staff and students taking part in extended trips this week. Year 5 will be on their annual pilgrimage to Beijing whilst Year 7s will be visiting Kota Kinabalu for a Science expedition.
Both groups have spent time exploring where they are going using Google Earth. year 7 students have started to learn about geo-tagging which will allow them to use their own images in GE when they get back.
Thankfully for those going to Beijing the weather will be significantly better than when the current Google Earth image was created. Here below the marble boat area of the Summer Palace with the surrounding lake completely frozen!
