Year 8 save the planet

Year 8 brought in their homework this week from last term’s unit on Global Challenges. Tasked with the concept of creating something useful out of recycled materials the students did not disappoint. The materials used ranged from plastic bags and elastic bands to the more specific Nespresso capsules and corks. The students have given a lot of thought to the pressing environmental issues and this homework was a chance for them to find some solutions to these. Some favourite pieces included: a bag knitted entirely from old plastic bags, a chessboard and pieces and a hat grand enough to wear at Ascot.
