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!

Murder By Number

murderbynumbersWednesday 21st July saw the successful hosting of an event called “Murder by Number”. This combined fun literacy and numeracy puzzles and fifteen Year 5 students from Moseley Primary School took part. The students became detectives for the afternoon, working together to solve the crime of the “cat killer”! 

After a series of different activities the crime was solved and the perpetrator secured … all due to some great detective work by the Moseley students…Well done! 

The Year 5 students received certificates and even their own pair of min handcuffs!

readwithmeThe Year 12 BTEC level 3 Drama students – known as “Stage Frighters” -  recently created a piece of theatre exploring the ”Summer Reading Dip” in an attempt to encourage pupils to read over the summer holidays. Having worked hard to develop and shape the materials the company were ready for performance on the Transition Day for Year 6 pupils. The result?  An entertaining and informative show which we hope will have inspired everyone to keep reading over their summer holidays! You can see photos of the event in our Gallery.

Well done Year 12!
