Here’s the latest from Samuel Laycock, as we reach the end of a very busy week.
7L Abstract Art
Pupils in 7L have been exploring colour and abstract artists in their art lessons. They have looked at the difference between warm and cool colours and why these colours are called this. Then, pupils looked at abstract art by Robert Delaunay and recreated one of his paintings.
Pupils across school have been very busy again in their Food Tech lessons making fruit salad, meatballs in tomato sauce and chickpea fritters! Pupils in the Food Technology pathway made hot and sour soup and Risalamande (Danish rice pudding).
Children’s Adventure Farm
2 groups of Year 7s embarked on their residentials to the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust. If you’ve been keeping up with the posts on social media, you’ll see that they’ve been having the best time and making lots of memories!
