RHS Wisley Gardens Trip


RES Wisley Gardens Trip


To help inspire the year 10 Art Textile students with their new project based on gardens, we decided to visit RHS Wisley gardens. We had a beautiful crisp morning, bright but rather chilly; however, that didn’t stop the students from enthusiastically snapping their way round the gardens photographing everything from flowers to weeds, bugs to birds.

We also visited the butterfly house; a few of us with slightly more reluctance than others. The huge butterflies busily danced around above our heads, occasionally stopping to perch on a shoulder or head of a passer by allowing us to get some amazing close up shots.

We then went on to share our lunch with a variety of cheeky little birds by the cafe, we then walk round the pond, posed by the pagoda and then it was time to head back to school.

It was a lovely trip out and hopefully the students have a lot of material to work from so check back in a few weeks to see some images of their project progress.

 
Art Trip to Paris

RES Art Paris Trip 2016


Art Staff and students recently returned home from their brilliant 4-day trip to Paris.

The tour included visits to the Louvre, the Musee D’Orsay and the Pompidou. We also made the most of our coach driver to take us to several famous Parisian landmarks.

Students’ highlights included seeing Da Vinci’s Portraits at the Louvre (Amelia Dec), Van Gogh’s ‘Woman of Arles’ at the D’Orsay (Charlotte Pike), the ‘art and Architecture’ at the Pompidou (Amelia Day & Megan Carter), the -brief- visit to the Eifel Tower (Lauren Woolhouse), the ‘rap’ performance on the final night (Eliza Boatright), the trip to the towering Montparnasse building (Leah Favell-Clarke, Liz Ghalustians & Eleanor Taylor), Notre Dame Cathedral (Jennifer Adams & Sarah Ford), the walk around Montmartre near the Sacre Cour (Kelly Salvat) and the “amazing sights and amazing people” (Ella Malenoir)… oh and the final evening game of ‘My Auntie Likes’ (James Walsh)!


RES Art Paris Trip 2016


6 A-Level art students from Clapton Girls School joined us once again this year. From very early on, the Clapton, Rydens, KS5 and KS4 students were freely mingling with each other.

Lots of great work was created in sketchbooks over the 4 days. Students were busy during gallery visits, in the coach, on the ferry, in the hotel – pretty much everywhere! Many thanks to Mr Field for another fantastic booklet of activities. This helped to inspire many of the students – and staff! Thanks too, to Mr Caswell and Ms Willis for their excellent company and hard work (and some lovely poetry).  It was of course, also a pleasure to have the company of Mr Purday and Ms Smale from Clapton Girls.

All of the students were fantastic company and made us incredibly proud; they were all perfect representatives for Rydens School. It was great to see another side to some personalities – several students really ‘came out of themselves’ this year. Many of them composed and performed a poem/rap for the last evening. Well done to all involved for this (it takes real nerves!), but particularly the solo-performers including Liz Ghalustians, Paula McGechan and Lauren Woolhouse --and-- Dave, our driver!!

Mr Field, Ms Willis, Mr Caswell and the teachers from Clapton all agreed that the trip had been a great start to their ½ term holiday. It is no exaggeration to say that it’s things like this that make teaching a real joy. We are looking forward to another trip next year already.

Mrs Puri and Mr Byrne of the Science Department took 25 Year 10 students to BP's ICBT, Sunbury on 12th February. The day involved students visiting the Upstream Learning Centre where they had the opportunity to see robotic equipment and learned about drilling.

The students also visited the Highly Immersive Visualisation Experience to see how to interpret seismic data in 3D. After lunch students had to develop an exploration strategy and manage risks that will encounter during 10 years production phase to maximise the profits from the recovered oil.

It was an amazing experience for RES students who were a credit to the school.
