Pixl Edge Week Success

On the week commencing Monday 27 June, students in Years 7-9 partook in Pixl Edge week with a number of exciting and creative projects running across the Academy.  A group of brave students produced a theatrical performance of 'The Ancient Mariner's Tale' within four days that they performed to the rest of the Academy on the Friday, supported by a wealth of props that had been made by another project group.  Another group produced a series of art pieces that will be used to decorate the Art Block, whilst a team of green fingered students improved the floral displays around the Academy. There was a sporting project that saw students try out a number of alternative sports whilst the catering project had a cake bake off and a visit the Norwich City Football Club. A group of students used computer animation tools to produce a number of animations whilst some intrepid scientists built and launched rockets. There was also a Saxon re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings and a visit from Sandringham Estate homing pigeons which students were able to release as part of a World War II communications project. To top it all off, the Academy now boasts a completely student built brick BBQ area for celebration events!
