Year 8 : Art & Design

The start of a new term means only one thing… We are starting a new project! Year 8 pupils have been learning about Pop art, the 1960’s and Andy Warhol today. Our work focussed on Warhol’s soup can print today.  

 We enjoyed listening to music from the sixties while we sketched soup cans in our sketchbooks too. 

9F form group update

It’s been a busy term for 9F! 

We have been working hard during Accelerated Reading time and have read various books throughout the term. 

In addition to this some of 9F have earned enough acorns to go out on an end of term reward trip on the last week of term. Activities chosen include visiting the cinema, Rof 59 trampoline centre and a Christmas shopping extravaganza at the Metro Centre with myself.

Just a quick reminder that’s it’s Parents Evening on Wednesday 2nd December. All welcome!
