No pain no gain as Year 9U2 battle injuries and still manage to complete Gaudi final pieces

Thanks to Millie Cotterill for taking these photos yesterday of her Year 9 group as they finished off their Antoni Gaudi mixed materials (level) pieces and Evaluations. Miss Johnson and Miss Townsend tell me that despite a broken wrist and a set of broken fingers in the group - they still managed to do the biz and get everything finished off to a good National Curriculum level and on time. Nice one Brandon and Callum - and Steven who finished first.

Even the Evaluation seems detailed,
well presented and 'in the style of''.

Wake up!

Broken wrist - but what has Ross got the thumbs up for?

When everything was finished our students then did the usual AFL (Assessment For Learning) exercise and went on to level their own work. Nice one. This will now be used as part of our tracking and reporting to parents.

Great to see so much mixed materials being used and coupled with all the pattern, flowing contours and use of colour I think the architect himself would have been proud of you.
