Holocaust Memorial Day 2018

The theme of the day was The Power of Words. Our guest speaker was Liz Berg who told the story of her husband’s family and how their lives were affected by the Holocaust. 9HE reenacted the story that Liz shared by using drama techniques such as freeze framing.  Props were also made to enhance their work.

During lessons, students focused on Holocaust survivor Renie Inow. Each student wrote a postcard to Renie, sharing their thoughts and feeling about her story.

9MW Bird Project

The group agreed to work collaboratively on the collage.  The project started with looking at patterns. They used a variety of printing techniques to create pattern and texture. Students then studied birds; collecting research and drawing from observation. The drawings were then scaled up and cut onto cardboard using the laser cutting machine. Collage techniques were used to cover the surface of the birds. They also used the patterns they had printed earlier in the project, a variety of textured and patterned paper, feathers and broken jewellery, to complete the birds.

Hamlet Theatre Visit – Thursday 8th February 2018

Watching a 3hour 15min live performance, all in Shakespearian language, would challenge the best of us but not our amazing Arts Award students! They were completely hooked from the start by this contemporary directed performance of Hamlet by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The students described the performance as ‘taking their breath away’, as well as ‘tense’, ‘moving’ and ‘outstanding’. 

Following their exhilarating experience, and to finish off their perfect day, one of our lucky students had the unique opportunity to pose for a photograph with one of the actors.


All that is left for me to add is wow, what a memorable, uplifting day!

Wembury beach


As part of an Asdan and APT  Environmental Project Year 10 visited Wembury Beach.  The students were on a mission to see how much plastic waste they could find on the beach.  They were also there to look at the biodiversity on hand by going rock-pooling.  After the recent rough seas we were expecting lots of flotsam and jetsam but I am happy to report  after extensive cleaning Year 10 only managed to fill less than two bags.  The beach was exceptionally clean and that meant the students had more time for rock-pooling. We were able  to see, and handle,  a  wide range of marine animals such as  blennies, shore-crabs and the highlight had to be the miniature starfish.  Year 10 will be collating all their findings back at school to prepare for our next trip to the beach on 2nd March to look at Bovisand.  The group will be focusing on whether there is more plastic pollution on Bovisand or Wembury and how much biodiversity there is at Wembury and Bovisand.  I would like to thank the students who overall behaved really well, and the excellent staff who helped make it such a great day.  Our thanks also goes to Coral Smith from The Marine Wildlife Association who was on hand to help us on the day and will be coming into school to follow up on our findings.

Photography at Brook Green

As the weather has been cold , some students walked around the school building with a camera and came up with an idea of using a creative side to photography, as you can see the students used their imagination .
