"100 years ago the guns fell silent"
Students in all classes have been studying aspects of World War One and interpreting their work through English, Art & Design and Technology. Mr & Mrs Bate, respresentatives of The Royal British Legion, visited school and the wonderful display which pays tribute to those who gave their lives in the conflict, and were astonished by the quality and attention to detail in the work.
Mrs Thomas' class have created an artistic interpretation of the "Shot At Dawn" memorial which is thought provoking, as students explain to visitors what it represents, and how we interpret such concepts in the present day.
Miss Chappell, Mrs Rudge and a group of Sixth Formers have created a model of a private soldier, complete with helmet, backpack and rifle, with a shadow of poppies and poetry behind him.
Class 5 students present a silhouette of an unknown soldier, together with a collage of poppies in mixed mediums.
Trench Art, a model of the Middleport Pottery Weeping Window, is a representation of a battlefield on the Somme, poetry and tributes to local soldiers, all demonstrate our tribute to the commemoration of the signing of The Armistice.
If you are in school please do have a look at our work, otherwise the galleries page for photographs, it really is something to see and an excellent effort by students and staff alike.
