El Dorado. The city of gold.
Does it exist?
That’s the challenge set to a group of intrepid year 5 and year 6 pupils in autumn 2017.
For 10 weeks, the group will be studying artefacts and researching a variety of sources to find out if there is any truth behind the legend.
Their research has begun with an advertising poster inviting fellow 9 and 10 year olds to apply to take part in the expedition.
