Yr 7 Locker Shields

06 June 2023

If you happen to wander down to the Yr 7 locker room, you will see the lockers adorned with some special artwork. Our Yr 7 students created shields in Art class - a task that built on their King Arthur Main Lesson where they learned about the code of chivalry and then wrote their own code which they wanted to live by. For this project, they looked at the heraldry of the medieval period and then the students designed their own shield, considering the symbolism of colour and form and creating a design that represented their family, history, values, and interests. What a lovely reminder of what is important to them every time they open their locker.
