The programme for the day involved reflecting on the use made of light in the local churches and we are grateful to both Cullercoats Methodist Church and St George’s Church in Cullercoats for hosting groups of students as they researched stained glass windows.

Another group of students used knowledge of shadow and lighting to create superb light boxes.

They took part in a Science and Dance based activity in which they created a motion piece to illustrate the energy transferred by coloured light, as well as a Media project, designing Christmas themed adverts which used the colour theme of the day.

Then, in the afternoon, all students created and made Christmas themed stained glass effect panels to help decorate the school.

Well done to all who took part, and have a great Christmas.

Happy holidays from everyone at Marden High.

Year 7 Get Creative in Cross-Curricular Project

This term, a small group of Year 7 students have been working on a cross-curricular project between the Technology and Media Studies departments; their task was to create a digital media marketing campaign promoting careers in STEM!

One team’s eye-catching poster designs.

This could promote STEM in school or STEM careers and also give Year 7 the opportunity to take part in some practical Media Studies lessons and learn about the world of media marketing.

In an ‘Apprentice’-style task over twelve lessons, they went head-to-head as rival teams and designed team logos, posters and campaign videos, as well as learning about careers in STEM and the importance of brand identity.

The teams present their work at the end of the project.

Another intrepid group will now take on the task over the coming weeks. For a more in-depth look at what they have been getting up to, CLICK HERE to visit the dedicated project page on our website.

Well done to everyone who worked so hard!
