Pupils get involved in Langtree creativity day
Published 15/02/14



PUPILS at Langtree School in Woodcote enjoyed a range of activities as part of a creativity day.

The school bell was switched off and the timetable suspended as all 550 students took part in themed workshops.

Year 7 students attended a samba class where they were taught about the history and culture of the traditional Brazilian dance. They learned how to play samba rhythms and then performed the dance.

They also took part in art workshops and painted abstract designs.

One group of year 8 and 9 students studied the topic of space.

They designed habitats for living on Mars, wrote short stories about alien encounters and entered an inflatable planetarium provided by Winchester Science Centre.

Another group visited Bletchley Park to learn about its role in cracking coded German transmissions during the Second World War. A third group was given a masterclass in Indian cookery by chef Paul Burrows, of the Highwayman pub-restaurant in Exlade Street.

Year 10 pupils visited the British Museum to support their ancient history studies or took part in science experiments at the school.

Year 11 students were given mock job interviews by local business owners and learned revision skills for this year’s GCSEs.

This was the third year running that the school has held a creativity day.

Headteacher Rick Holroyd said: “Creativity days support the school curriculum but in a very different way from conventional lessons.

“They let the students take control and to use their imaginations and natural spirit of enquiry. The students have a lot of fun and the school buzzes with excitement on these days. It is a great experience to be part of.”
