In Pygora Class we have been looking at how trains have shaped and changed Ashford over the years. Through this, we had an art day where we used different techniques to show trains in motion. We also created our own modes of transport that could have been used instead of trains in the future. Some of these involved flying buses, while others looked towards a more environmentally friendly method of travel by recycling rubbish, vegetable juice and water, and burning it for fuel. We’ve spent an afternoon acting as town planners, creating the perfect town to live in based around train lines and the train industry, we included hospitals, schools, homes and wide open green spaces. In KIC theatre with Ian, we used drama to focus on our fiction text 'The Lost Thing' and thought about how it would feel to be lost and what effect humans are having upon beeches and the wildlife that inhabits it.
