GLOBETROTTING pupils travelled the world in a single day to put their learning on the map.


Years 6 pupils from Barnard Castle Preparatory School staged a tourism fair as part of their Achievement Award, an invaluable alternative to SATs.


Children selected a country of their choice before researching every aspect of its culture. They then set up a stall featuring a host of interesting facts, games, artefacts and even food types which they shared with visitors to the event from other year groups.


Year 6 teacher Katie Shearn said: “They came up with some wonderful facts and figures and were so enthusiastic about sharing them with everyone.


“Some chose less obvious countries, such as the Philippines, which they knew nothing about but have now said they would love to visit. It also fits in perfectly with the school’s Green Flag Award which recognises global citizenship.”
