Making electronic quizzes with @yr6bhs. Some excellent (and tricky) questions. I will hang my certificate from Mia and Katie up with pride (I didn’t know pizza originated in Greece!) @BlackheathHigh @BlackheathSci #STEAMWeek https://t.co/ZEiuYpeRDi

Year 6 students were given the name of an architect and an image of a typical building they had designed. They then researched the architect, deconstructed the image into a series of "shards" and then reconstructed it in the style of said architect.
Students then built 150mm cubes to which they added the imagery. This created a modular wall that can be constructed into whatever shape is required. Architects included the late Iraqi great Zaha Hadid, conceptualist Ron Herron, hi tech Londoner Norman Foster, American prairie style genius Frank Lloyd Wright and Czech staircase specialist Eva Jiricna.
The designs were submitted to the government’s London competition for ideas for the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square and may be viewed at the site here (filter Greenwich schools):
