The students were tasked with producing and presenting a piece of creative work which links to the stimulus of The Cornovirus.

Students have pulled out all the stops to deliver some outstanding pieces of work across a range of media. From dance, drama, music, art, cookery, sewing, creative writing and design, there has been a huge variety of energetic, colourful, informative and often hilarious projects.  The standard was exceptionally high and a winner was chosen from each of the six categories. They are:

  • MUSIC – Elsa wright – written/ composed her own song – ‘Lockdown Lullaby’
  • DANCE – Phillipa Kind – Dance performance/ choreography & video
  • MEDIA – George Williams – Lego Stop Motion video
  • DRAMA – Connie Lord – Comedy sketch video
  • ARTS & CRAFTS – Katie Carruthers – Lockdown scrap book & numerous creations
  • BAKING – Nathan Wilson – Smarties Stay Safe Cake

Mrs Fox, Lead Teacher for Dance, said: “We have been bowled over by both the quality and quantity of submissions – the students set the bar extremely high and they all delivered great pieces of work.  They have clearly devoted a lot of time to carefully considering the brief and have come up with innovative and inventive ways to present their work. We have some extremely talented students and I would like to thank all of them for their commitment to this challenge and for their stunning contributions which have given us so much joy and pleasure.

“The winners were chosen due to the care, time and effort they have put into their creativity projects. We felt that the six selected students took the stimulus of the Coronavirus and created something positive and uplifting from it, which was great to see. They will each receive a £5 amazon voucher.”
