Fantasic fantasy cactus designed and made by pupils at Revoe Learning Academy for the Fantasy Plant Shop project.
Supported by the community and funded by LeftCoast as part of the ‘Growing People’ initiative in Blackpool.
A small selection of fantasy fruit and vegetables. Made by pupils from Revoe Learning Academy during our ‘Fantasy plant shop’ workshops.
Young people picked out an unusual fruit or vegetable name from the ‘mystery bag’ then drew out a design based on how they thought they might look. At the end of the session there was an opportunity to research the origins of the fruit or vegetable.
All these items are made from recycled materials.
Can you guess what the fruit or vegetable name was? Or where they may have come from.
Nearly all fruit and vegetables that we eat originate from other parts of the world and are not native to the UK.
Our project Fantasy Plant Shop is funded by LeftCoast.
Another small selection of plants made by year 5 this time.
Picking out unusual plant and flower and plant names from the ‘mystery bag’ first the pupils then drew out a design of how they visualized their plant might look. Later after making the plants and flowers using recycled materials they researched how the plant really looked and where in the world the plant came from.
The project was set up to support and publicise the community garden project on Central Drive and is funded by LeftCoast.
On Friday afternoon we worked with year 4.
Each pupil picked out an unusually named plant or flower from the ‘mystery bag’ and then drew a design of how they thought the plant might look. We invited the young people to research the origins of the plants and to look up how the plant really looked, after they had created these amazing fantasy plants using recycled materials.
These are just a small sample of all the plants created.
This project is supported by the local community and funded by LeftCoast as part of their ‘Growing People’ initiative in Blackpool
As part of our Fantasy Plant project and Funded by LeftCoast we worked with year two at Revoe Learning Academy and here are their ‘Fantasy’ mushrooms. Here is a small selection of their work.
Each pupil picked out an unusual mushroom name from the ‘mystery bag’ and then drew out the design before making their own mushroom using recycled materials.
They turned out just great.
