Summer Term Project

Our main learning question this half term is 'Is it better to stand our or fit in?' 

We will focus on Art projects and textiles to design and create fashion pieces. We will also focus on our two main designers Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. This project will have an art, music, textiles and science focus although other subjects will be explored such as history, computing, RE and PSHE. 

The following websites provide information on some of the issues we have thought about so far.
