It has been a fantastic term in D&T so far!

Pupils had the exciting opportunity to take part in the D&T / History / Geography, Recycled Architecture competition. Pupils designed and constructed a model of any building of their choice in the world, for example, a famous landmark. They had to use recycled materials such as sticks, cardboard, paper and bottles to create their chosen architectural design. There were an impressive number of projects submitted, in which Miss Ni’Man and Mr Stanley had the challenge of adjudicating and deciding the winners. With such a variety of buildings that had been beautifully constructed demonstrating a high level of model making skills, it came down to the attention to detail and complexity shown in the architectural projects.  Projects included The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Chichen Itza, The Taj Mahal and many, many more.

Every pupil who participated had their work showcased in the dedicated D&T and Humanities Co-Curricular Assembly on 1 March. All pupils waited with bated breath to find out the results. The excitement in the room was palpable, with all entries receiving 50 House Points and the Top Five winners receiving 200 House Points! Each pupil came up to the front of the Hall with pride and collected a certificate for their inspiring efforts in the competition. This followed by them presenting to the rest of the School confidently utilising their oracy skills, the name of the building they made and where it is found in the world. 

Thereafter, with a drumroll echoing in the Hall, the moment had arrived for the Top Five  winners to be revealed. The winners each received a 3D printed trophy to celebrate their success. Congratulations to all the pupils that took part in this memorable competition! They truly inspired both staff and pupils with their fantastic achievement and is a testament to their hard work.
