Today we made our breakfast and came into Blackpool. We bought some gifts, went on the beach, had fish and chips for lunch and now we are ready for the circus.
Today 10L have been making bird feeders. They had to measure out ingredients carefully and follow a method.
This afternoon, we have been preparing for the Summer Fair in July.
We have been making Garden Tealight Holder to sell on our Up-Cycling stall.
We are covering our tealight holders in pretty flowers, before varnishing them to make them weatherproof, and putting a citronella candle in each one.
We managed to make and stick flowers on half of our jars today. We will do the other half of the jars next week, and then varnish them after half term.
We think they will look great once they are finished.
We hope you all come to the Summer fair and buy one!!!
Today the printing group took inspiration from the painting ‘Sunflowers’ and used cardboard tubes to print flowers on canvas. I am sure you will agree how talented the group are! Next week we are off to Bowes Museum to a printing workshop.
The Year 10 Vocational Studies group were at the Locomotion Museum in Shildon, working in the garden this afternoon.
It was our third visit of the term, and although things still need time to grow, the flower beds are starting to look good.
We were working on four of the flower beds today. We removed some Spring bulbs from one of the flower beds which we are making into a Hosta bed. We did some weeding to the rockery garden, before planting some new plants. We weeded another flower bed, before planting some Lupins, and we dug one of the other flower beds over which we removed old plants from during our last visit.
The flowerbed are just starting to show the first signs of bloom. They will flourish in the next couple of months, as things grow and become a blaze of colour.
If you are visiting the Locomotion Museum over the summer months – please take a minute to enjoy the results of our hard work!!
