Supertiere are superb!

Our Year 7 students have produced exceptional work for their ‘Supertiere’ German homework. They were tasked with designing and creating their own Super Animal and had the freedom to craft them from materials of their choice. They also had to write an article describing their designs. The standard was superb with some really innovative creations using a wide selection of techniques and materials.  Please browse through the image gallery of the designs – they are so impressive. The Supertiere were displayed in the student reception area for students and staff to enjoy and it was wonderful to see the admiration from everyone as they browsed the designs.

The Supertiere were judged by Mrs Potter, who had a very difficult decision to make as the standard was so high.  The winner was Grace for her fantastic dogs, Paul and Stefan. In 2nd place was Milly with Forest the Peacock and Lottie came 3rd with Myrtle the Turtle.  Aidan’s owl, Ellen’s stick insects and Lacey’s octopus were all highly commended.  Miss Dunwoodie presented prizes to the students in assembly.

Miss Dutton, Lead Teacher for German, said: “We have been blown away with the amazing work our students have produced for this project. Their imaginative and creative designs are outstanding and it was great to see the huge variety of Supertiere from owls and giraffes to foxes and even an octopus!”

Grace said of her winning dogs: “The thing that inspired me to create my dogs was my own dog Fudge. He is a white and lemon spaniel, so I made Stefan white and Paul light brown. Also, I just love dogs in general!!!! My dogs are made out of a pair of white socks, that I stuffed with rice and stuffing to make the body shape. Then I covered them in wool to make the fur and added a ribbon, eyes and a nose to finish them off.”

Thank you to all the students who devoted so much time to make their Supertiere – an amazing effort by everyone involved.
