SAW Day – Changes and Properties of Materials

Wednesday 27th March 2024

For our SAW day, we looked at Changes and Properties of Materials. We had a focus on looking at the environment of the Ocean and how different materials can affect our ecosystem. We started off by trying to filter out materials from water. In the Art section, we looked at ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ by Japanese artist Hokusai. We used paper to create different shades of blues to recreate this picture. We then discussed the problem of ‘Microplastics’ and created a double page spread about why they are a problem.
