Art Textiles recycling work

Art/Textiles students in Years 10 and 11 have been using their lockdown time to look at how they can recycle ordinary everyday items into something special.  The results have been astonishing, showing without a doubt that recycling is the way to go.  Congratulations to all students on producing such original designs.

Artwork is thriving under home learning

Although the majority of students have been engaged in on line learning since the start of the lockdown at the beginning of this term, a lot of amazing work has been taking place in living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms across the school community.

Our Art department has received some brilliant artwork sent in by students whilst home learning and we would like to share below some examples of what has been achieved.  The “eye” themed pieces of work are by Year 8 students whilst the remainder are from a collection of work by Year 10 students.

Technology Department in full swing

In the period up to Christmas, before the covid lockdown in January, the Technology Department was able to run some after school homework/coursework sessions for our Key Stage 4 students, with all appropriate safety measures in place. Their hard work both in lessons and after school has produced some exceptional work.

Textiles, students have been working on products based on nature, which involves experimenting with many different techniques and using artists as inspiration for their work.

Health and Social Care students have been researching some support organisations for families in poverty.

Food technology students have been working on their controlled assessments, where they have been building their practical skills base to enable them to identify three to four dishes based on a theme, two of which they would be required to cook in a three hour practical exam, should this be allowed under Government/Exam Board guidelines.

The gallery below shows some of the brilliant work that has been taking place.
