Blog week ending 18th June

Posted on: 18/06/2021

Our Year 7 Students have been exploring the roles and work of Charities as part of their Successful Lives Programme. In this lesson students explored The Big Issue magazine and the methods it uses to raise awareness and money for the homeless.  The students evaluated the magazine covers brainstorming ideas (pictured below) before starting to draft their own front covers.




Mrs Artmann’s Year 7 English students are working on their creative writing skills to develop their ideas and stories in an individual, original and compelling read.  In this grammar-based lesson Mrs Artmann worked with the students to create a pause and add emphasis in their writing by using semi-colons.


Mrs Jackson’s Y7 Art students are experimenting with materials and techniques to create different effects in their artwork.  In this lesson they were working with India ink to master colour washes and building layers.  India ink is a tricky medium to master but the students worked really well and produced some great work.
