Imagining the Sun Inspires Project

Students produced some fantastic work during a two-day creative project inspired by the sun.

Led by the science team, Imagining the Sun involved all students across the Josephine Butler Secondary campus.

Each department came up with their own ways to get involved:

  • Maths made sundial and pin hole cameras
  • English created a set of Icarus wings, stories and a ‘Sun’ newspaper
  • Humanities looked at sun worship through the ages
  • Science created a giant sun made from the signed palm print from everyone in school as well as a 2D and 3D solar system
  • PE played solar games
  • Vocational imagined life on another planet
  • Music made their own CD
  • SEND made a sensory 3D display of the solar system and sun-themed cakes were baked and sold
  • Art made solar themes displays
