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.
