During the first session the Year 8 students of groups Ar5 and Ar4 looked at the different types of boats and examples of Hew Locke’s work. After the ship knowledge and design brainstorming they made drawings of the boats they wanted to make. Work on constructing boats started following week. To make their ships the pupils used collected prior to the workshop plastic trays and packaging that were glued according to their designs. After having all the ships parts assembled the students used plasticine and other materials to create cargo and equipment for their boats.
