Members of the student voice at Boston Spa School have been working with two artists from ‘an invisible man project‘ to produce learning outside the classroom.

Artists Stephen Burke and Jim Cereal work in schools to develop’ learning outside the classroom’ by using art to inspire students.

And they aim to get students thinking out side the box with their art work by questioning how the images and text link with thinking and learning in each subject area.

“The aim has been to make corridors come alive with different images and text to support learning in each area,” said Assistant Headteacher for Community and Ethos Jeanette Craig.

“At Boston Spa School in each learning there are images which link to that curriculum focus e. g humanities has a giant tsunami linked to geography with key words coming out from the waves

“The work started in English where they took the theme of Harry Potter with key words coming from his wand and also a giant chalk board where students and staff could write poems/comments to support work in English,” she explained.

In languages the theme was to incorporate the teachers with various phrases in both Spanish, French and German and have an image as a clue as to what to phrase meant.

Science have a time line from the big bang to the present day and DNA going up the stairs.

Humanities have a giant tsunami with key words coming from the waves and maths have a rabbit theme carried through the design with a variety of mathematical concepts to challenge students.

“The work is now complete and all students agree it makes a huge difference to their learning environment,” added Ms Craig.
