Masterclasses and a Talent Show have kept ORA students at Jowett Walk on their toes this week, whilst our fashionistas have showcased their final pieces.
The Zoolab Masterclass arrived at Jowett Walk to immerse students in an interactive and fascinating animal experience.
Bringing with them lizards, snakes, insects and more, the Zoolab team introduced pupils to incredible animals from all over the world, providing extensive information about their habitats and diet. Students were captivated by the chance to handle the animals and take close-up pictures, a once in a lifetime experience.
Singers, musicians, dancers and comedians came forward earlier in the week for the renowned Jowett Walk Talent Show. Soloists dazzled with singing, whilst groups performed exciting dance routines choreographed by the students themselves.
The level of talent was breathtaking, with skills seeming to emerge from the woodwork and wow the audience. For some, it was an interesting opportunity to learn more about the people they’re already such good friends with, whilst others loved showcasing their impressive talents.
Despite the fantastic variety of talents performed, there can only be one winner. Congratulations to Mickey who stole the show with his singing and ukulele performance.
Final Fashion Pieces
For those on the Fashion course, this week presented their chance to reveal their final works of art.
Made from a selection of materials, including recycled and repurposed items, the final pieces were exceptional fashion masterpieces. Colourful ruffles, daring necklines and innovative styles ensured that the dresses amazed and impressed the viewers.
We are extremely proud of our fashion students, who have expertly harnessed the theory they have learnt in class and applied it to their work. We wouldn’t be surprised to see them designing their own lines of fashion one day.
Those with a flair for crime and a keen investigative spirit joined the CSI Masterclass at Jowett Walk. Dressed in hazmat suits, goggles and gloves, students were ready to enter the scene of the crime and analyse the evidence.
Yellow tape invited detectives to the crime scene and markers pointed them towards pieces of evidence that had been carelessly left behind. Dusting the area for prints, some students began analysis on fingerprints and searched for matching identities, whilst others compiled witness testimonials and created a potential image of the criminal.
The class was interactive and intriguing, as the groups worked together to discover who had committed the crime and why. Complete with lots of laughter, detailed analysis and skilled detective skills, pupils solved the crime.
Soon we bid ORA students at Jowett Walk farewell, but be sure to check back to hear about how they get on at Graduation this evening.
