What a brilliant week! This week the students form Wodensborough Ormiston Academy came to Ingestre Arts. With the group ranging from Year 7 to Year 10 there was a lot of apprehension on the first day however, by the end of the week all this had changed. The first workshop was a team building activity, where working in mixed groups, the students had to make a bridge to support a full drinks can. Bridges were marked on their aesthetic, and also their effectiveness! With the emphasis on teamwork, students were forced to communicate with others who they wouldn’t necessarily have approached on their own, and whilst it sounds tough, it made for beginnings of lots of new friendships through the week.
The 58 students threw themselves into workshops in Drama, Dance, Music and Art, all pushing them out of their comfort zones resulting in some fantastic work.
