Stanborough School hosted a collaborative Technology Day with students from Applecroft and Lakeside School to design and make some beautiful bird boxes. Mr Bell and Mr Murray from technology gave instructions on how to design and create a bird box whilst the students from Stanborough guided the younger students on its assemblage. The students worked well in a group of four using wood, screws and a template, created by Mr Bell. The outcomes looked amazing!
The students then ventured over to the art department to complete their bird box and learnt how to paint using a camouflage technique, demonstrated by myself and Miss Barnard.
Each bird box has been made with the collaborative creativity of all the students and we look forward to seeing the bird boxes in action in the Spring.
