On the 28th February 2022, to celebrate our exciting new STEM fortnight, we invited all of Year 7 to join us at the Blue Planet Aquarium. This educational experience included classroom workshops, diver talks and the opportunity to view a range of marine forms in preparation for our Art & Design Unit 2 Sculpture Project.
Throughout the day, students were fully engaged with a wide range of activities, looking at textures and learning about the biodiversity in our precious coral reefs. Environmental issues were also discussed and we explored ways of protecting our marine habitats.
It is aimed that over the following months, Year 7 will use this visit as a useful reference source for observational drawing and textural clay sculptures. We look forward to sharing examples of our student’s work later this academic year.
