Each Friday Mr Sankey, Miss Stone and a Year 10 class spend the day at Writtle College near Chelmsford. Writtle was established in 1893 and offers a range of land-based, design and sport courses at various levels of academic study including Postgraduate, Undergraduate, Further Education, Short Courses and Apprenticeships. Our Year 10 pupils spend time each week in various areas of the college doing interesting things such as gardening, woodwork and working with the animals.
At the moment Mrs Buttigieg'sYear 10 Art lessons have been all about creating illustrations in the style of the author and illustrator, Eric Carle. Pupils have designed their own bird, fish or animal and painted sheets ready to cut up into collage work. Year 9 pupils have been making their own photographic portraits in the style of David Hickney's "Joiner". They have used photos taken of each other from different viewpoints; front facing, left and right profile. They have cut and stuck their own very unique portraits. Year 8 pupils have been looking at the work of the abstract painter Paul Klee. Using wax crayons and water colour washes they have been creating their very own versions of Klee's work, "The Castle and the Sun".
Year 8 Textiles
Class 8B have been practicing their sewing skills over the past few weeks. They have worked on running stitch, over stitch and even had a go at sewing on a button.
