The West Bridgford School

A Specialist Technology Academy

THE FORCE WAS WITH WEST BRIDGFORD! TECHNOLOGY DEPT SCI-FI DAY

scifi dayFriday 10th February saw the West Bridgford School invaded by aliens, space ships and a lot of glitter! Year 8 spent the day working in Art, Design and technology becoming designers and innovators of science fiction film production.

Pupils chose to work in a variety of workshops including – creating storyboards, set design, space vehicles, alien food, making trailers and costume design. The workshops were run by all the staff of the Art, Design and Technology Department. During the workshops points were awarded for creativity, organisation, problem solving, and outcomes. The form with the most points won and it was….. 8E!

Pupils spent the day being creative and inventive with materials and ideas, developing skills in problem solving and initiative; linked to the many industries within the creative sector such as illustration, 3D design, engineering, film, TV and advertising.

With the creative industries contributing an estimated £84.7 billion to the UK economy, 2.8 million jobs and exports of £17.9 billion these are certainly skills and professions pupils may well find them-selves using or working in, in the future.

The day was really positive and fun with pupils really engaging with all the tasks, coming together at the end of the day to present their tutor groups response to the design challenge to Mr Peacock - Head teacher. All the staff and pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day. Click here to view the evidence!
