Are you a 'Curious Creature'?
Thursday, 22 July 2010 09:50

curiouscreatures25 year 9 students in Textiles have been working this term to produce a 'Curious Creature'. The students were given a design brief that stated they had been asked by a popular toy company to create the latest cuddly toy called a 'Curious Creature'. They had to conduct investigations, fabric testing, research into health and safety regulations and produce packaging to market their toy, ensuring their toy was suitable for children aged 6 and upwards. 

The students worked hard and produced some fantastic results! Well done to all!

You can find photos of the individual pieces in our Gallery

y7showcaseOn Wednesday morning a group of year 7s got a chance to showcase the work they have done this half term. The pupils have been working on a publishing project in their English lessons which has involved designing their company logos; writing an editorial policy; designing book covers and posters and writing the openings of their new books

The members of staff who attended were really impressed with all of the hard work that the pupils had put in and all the students will be receiving certificates to celebrate all of their brilliant ideas and effort. Well done 7-5!
