HORACE, SOPHIE AND JULIET
Two weeks ago we went to see my old school in Ancoats with Martin from Venture Arts and met the owner, we went inside the school which is going to become a car park. After that we went to Every street where my old house was and took a picture. We then went to Counsillor street where the freight trains go. We waited for a train to pass and were really lucky to see one! Sophie took some photos. I used to go up there and watch the rail line, that’s bringing back memories.
Last week we made a mini version of the school with my instructions and did research about Grange school where I went after Cambrian school closed down. I then interviewed Nick about his secondary school, he told a memory about setting something on fire in the science room! Nick used some wood to make the shape of the school’s buildings and the lake next to it. I liked Nick’s school.
People used to go to school in different days, they used to learn different things. I like talking about schools because it brings back good memories. I think people like bringing back their memories and I like hearing them.
This morning we talked about the development of the project. I would like to interview more people. We might be doing it in an art gallery. I am exited about it!
