100 Years Remembrance Display
2018 marks 100 years since the end of WW1, a special remembrance which Sir William Robertson Academy has been spending time teaching our students about the importance of remembrance and remembering those who have fought, died, survived any war. The school has been covering this across a wide range of subjects including History, Art, Graphics, Design & Technology and Food Technology.
Our Art & Design & Technology student’s wonderful work has been turned into an amazing display in reception. Our Year 9 and 10 GCSE groups created the poster artwork in Graphics. Their design brief was to raise awareness of ‘Remembrance’ following a period of research and using techniques learnt in lessons – such as stencilling, mono-printing and collage.
Pupils in Years 7 -13 have made poppies as part of their Art homework or GCSE or A Level studies. Upper school Art students have also been making lino prints to create a banner celebrating the 100th anniversary.
Mr Jex has renovated a Sir William Robertson memorial plaque. Sir William Robertson 1860 – 1933 who was a key figure in the First World War. To find out more information on him, visit our website page: Sir William Robertson
Mrs Cooke’s Food group held a bake sale in the lead up to Remembrance Day to sell Anzac biscuits and iced cakes they made in class and raised £66 for the Poppy Appeal.
Well done to all our students for some really poignant and wonderful work!
