This week, Hawthorn class took to the slopes at the Chill Factor. This was an exciting trip as part of their geography topic this term, in which they have been exploring a region in France – Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes. They have compared the human and physical features of Cheshire to that of Auvergne-Rhone; explored the significance of the Alps and investigated why the Alps is so popular with tourists.
As skiing is such a popular leisure activity in the Alps and brings in so many tourists, we thought it was only fair to see what all the fuss was about!
The children absolutely loved being on the slopes and it was a brilliant day to complete their topic and experience their learning first-hand.
