SCHOOLCHILDREN in Clevedon have created their own video and treasure hunt to portray how the town has enhanced their learning.

The work was carried out by the Clevedon Cluster Council which is made up of pupils from all six schools in the town who are tasked each year with improving an aspect of their education.

This year the brief was Clevedon as a Learning Environment and the youngsters decided to create a short video for their school websites exploring different areas and features of the town.

This was showcased t The Curzon Community Cinema when the pupils gave a speech to school governors, staff and parents about how they explored learning outside of the classroom.

Year eight student at Clevedon School, Billy Blackall said: “Being part of the cluster council has really made me more aware of how much we use Clevedon to help our learning and how much we take for granted about the area we live in.”

As part of the project the council has also devised a treasure trail for families to enjoy during the summer breack which will take participants to the different locations the pupils explored.

Entry sheets for the trail are available on each school’s website and certificates will be given out at the Marlens Marine Lake festival in September for those who complete the challenge.
