Year  5 Ironbridge trip produces sensational project work

Year 5 Preparatory School pupils created some impressive work based around a recent residential learning trip.

The Rydal Penrhos group at Wilderhope Manor and Ironbridge over two days, and managed to take part in numerous activities during their stay in a bid to enhance their learning outside of the classroom.

Following their trip they were tasked with producing a special project surrounding their findings from the trip, in addition to what were the key learning elements from their various visits.

The group produced a superb collection of impressive work, with the work of James Gilman and Anna Heyes awarded first place from their respective classes, with Rayan Kashif and Gabriele Subkovaite finishing in second.

The duo of Liam Farrell and Ella Northcott were also recognised with third place for their efforts.

Their first port of call during the residential was the Museum of the Gorge, where pupils learnt about the history of the area and the important part it played in the industrial revolution.

They then travelled the short distance to Jackfield Tile Museum where they had a tour of the facility, in addition to taking part in a workshop where they had the opportunity to create their own encaustic tile.

Following this they took a trip to Ironbridge itself where they had the opportunity to sketch the bridge and learn a little more about its history and construction, before visiting Enginuity, an interactive design and technology centre where they toured around the exhibits and participated in a workshop.

Blists Hill Victorian Town was the final venue, and the group took part in an Intaglio printing workshop in the morning followed by a relief printing workshop in the afternoon.

All six pupils received their projects and a generous round of applause at Rydal Penrhos’ weekly Celebration Assembly on Fruday, May 19.
