Independent study projects showcase students’ creativity and diligence

Thursday 9th February 2017

Humanities teachers at Treviglas were delighted with the standard of Independent Study Projects completed by Year 7 in the Autumn Term. Students went above and beyond the brief, to explore their local area in a project entitled ‘Navigator’. Students independently explored the geography and history of their ‘patch’ using a marvellous mixture of creative ideas. The finished projects really had the ‘wow’ factor and students have been awarded certificates. Mrs Maule, Leader of Learning for Humanities wants to congratulate the year group on this, their first Treviglas project. Special mention must go to those students who achieved a distinction star in this project:

Sebastian Bacon, Oli Frith, Nathan Harradine, Jack Hartley, Olivia Hughes, Jake Jackson, Oskar Mewitt, Richard Rundle, Scarlett Stevens, Emily Turner

Year 8 have been equally impressive with their autumn ISPs. With the title ‘Festivals’, Year 8s were encouraged to research at least one festival of their choice, and create a range of outcomes inspired by them. Festivals covered included well known ones such as Glastonbury and Boardmasters, but also more niche ones like Goodward Festival of Speed and some gaming festivals, depending on the students’ own interests. Some truly remarkable work was created, and the creative arts team were struck by the effort that many students went to on their project, and how well they had responded to the feedback they had received. Mr. Sam Colborne, leader of learning for creative  arts, commented, “We were delighted at how much pride so many of the students took in their work, and the range of creative outcomes they created – we saw sculptures, masks, delicious food and clothing designs, to name but a few.”

Students who achieved Distinction star on their projects were: Joel Armstrong, Cameron King, Lucy Northwood, Alex Schofield, Lucy Simmons, Yara Tarbuck, Lily Tate, Morwenna Taylor and Morgan Wrack
