ChemQuiz 2018

ChemQuiz 2018

Yesterday (21st June) a team containing some of our most promising young scientists travelled to MMU to take part in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual ChemQuiz event.  This event is the regional qualifier for the national “Top of the Bench” competition, and the team must consist of two year 8 students and one each from years 9 & 10.  The “quiz”  consists of three rounds; a general chemistry knowledge round; a practical lab-based activity and a demonstration/chemistry comprehension exercise.

Competing against 33 other teams from across the region, our students finished in an impressive 8thplace and received the prize for the outright winners of the chemistry demo/comprehension section, in which students were given unfamiliar information and asked to answer questions based on their ability to apply it.

The AGGS team was Vera P (Year 10), Christabel A (Year 9), Polina K (Year 8) & Nam V (Year 8).  They were an absolute credit to the school.  Well done!

Creative Collage

Collage can mean lots of different paper techniques and can be done in so many creative, unusual and personal ways. My year 9 class have produced some lovely, sleek, crisp pattern designs which would look great put into repeat and used for homewares….

Mrs Taylors Year 9 Work…

More fantastic responses to the sweets and treats project…

Artist of the Week…

Beautiful and thoughtful responses this week to the exam projects…

Artist pages (Critical Studies)…

No matter what year group you are in or which artist you are researching students often neglect the fact YOUR interpretation of their work is the most important element of the page. I would much rather see a detailed drawing which demonstrates understanding of the artist rather then lots and lots of writing. Some lovely examples of successful artist pages have been handed in this week across year 8 and 9.

Year 9 Exam Project: Food

I have had some lovely outcomes from the year 9s this week for their exam project. Lots of fresh and vibrant collages that would look great put into repeat patterns on homewares and fashion….

Sweets, treats and food…

The year 9 exam project is well under way and I am really pleased with the outcomes being produced. Creative, fun and skilled drawings are being developed…well done Year 9!

Year 9 Fashion

Beautiful examples of this years fashion project.

Here are some fabulous examples of Miss Taylor’s Year 9 fashion designs based on the work of Alexander McQueen and inspired by their own studies of reptiles and butterflies. They created their designs using repeat patterns and on their first design used fine line pen and water, the creativity and attention to details are stunning. They are currently working on their second design using collage and papercut. Fantastic work!!!
