Reinvent, Reuse, Recycle!

Our third and final STEAM day of the year was all about how we can use the arts to Reinvent, Reuse and Recycle and to raise awareness about how our waste is damaging our planet.

Year 7 students spent the day in different workshops; making games with cardboard, wind chimes from bottle tops and sculptures for bee’s. They used plastic bottles, pots and milk containers to sow seeds and even took part in cooking bread and butter pudding; showing how we can reduce food waste.

We were extremely lucky to have Nick Garnett, The Red Van Man join us for the day. He brought in lots of interesting recycled materials and students made a kinetic sculpture of a coral reef through play.

Sarah Evans, Silk ‘n’ Stuff, spent the day with students creating a wonderful piece of artwork from recycled materials to help raise awareness of plastics in our oceans.

The students had great fun making Cyanotypes with Peter Savage, a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. They painted paper with a chemical then used paper shapes to lay on top before taking them outside to expose them to sunlight, with really pleasing and interesting results!

Our Year 8 students looked into the environmental issues we face on our planet today, researching global issues and apps that help us be more green. They then had the opportunity to explore and design their own app. There were lots of great ideas such as a ‘Planet Saver’ and a ‘Green Info App’.

Ms Bainbrigge, who organised the day, said “An amazing day of STEAM activities demonstrating so many ways that we can use the arts to Reinvent, Reuse and Recycle. A very BIG thank you to all the staff who rose to the challenge and stepped out of their comfort zones to plan and deliver the amazing workshops. I think it will be a day that the students will certainly remember!”

Some feedback from our Year 7 and 8 students:

“I thought it was a very useful day to understand pollution”

“It was awesome!”

“I thought it was good because I learnt something new and got to try things I haven’t before”

“It was an awesome day and I cooked for the first time ever!”
