In collaboration with the Geography department, Year 9 were set the challenge of researching and decorating a white baseball boot. The brief was to convey a given ecosystem based on topics they are currently studying in Geography. The group were divided into table teams and given one iPad, one tray of trimmings and one of four mood boards: Marine, Desert/Savannah, Tropical rainforest and Tundra/polar. With just one double lesson the teams had to decide how best to represent their ecosystem for judging by Miss Prankherd, before the lunch bell rang. All teams allocated roles for research, decoration and promotional material. Team Tropical Rainforest won with a beautifully executed design and fantastic promotional posters and material on the plight of their ecosystem. I welcome you to view the wonderful shoes on display in the Textiles room. The class will reinforce their project with the upcoming trip to the Eden Project and goon to design their own individual up-cycled shoe based on an endangered species or habitat.
