Year 8 Design Day

40 year 8 Boys spent a day with the Arts University Bournemouth working with graduates and current students creating their own Cardboard City in the main school hall.

They were able to learn about Urban planning, construction, design, architecture, environmental issues, community, health and safety and scale in a creative context. The boys worked in small teams on different elements and tasks providing them with the opportunity to develop their collaboration, communication and presentation skills.

Their enthusiasm, creativity and imagination was a joy to watch and each and every boy made a substantial contribution to the final construction. They did such a fantastic job and their resilience and creativity made the day great fun and highlighted some of the amazing creative talent among our Key stage 3 boys which will aid them for their future progression here at TBOWA and beyond. Well Done Boys!!
