As the school closest to Houlton, pupils from Hillmorton Primary spent the final days of the summer term working on an exciting project that combined history with art and technology.
Teachers and pupils visited the ‘C’ Building (the nerve centre of operations at the old Radio Station Rugby) to see some of the equipment and get a feel for the history of the site before embarking on their projects.
Some children had a photography masterclass and took photographs of the technology and machinery inside the ‘C’ Building. They then digitally manipulated the images to create exciting visual effects. Others worked with a local artist, producing 3D mod rock creations which focused on the changing sizes of technology over the years. The final group used video to learn more about history, interviewing local people who had worked at the site and finding out about their experiences. The project also included poetry, with the children showing great creativity in everything they produced.
