Students from Dance, Drama and Art performed and exhibited at this year’s hugely popular rivers and canal themed Shipley Street Arts festival. Following our successful collaboration with the festival last year, the organisers approached us with the offer of providing workshops with professionals to produce performances and art work for the much bigger event this year.

Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of the River Aire, the historical significance of the canal, as well as the emotional reactions of students to the outdoor performance space, Titus Salt dramatists created a Physical Theatre performance entitled 'Waterways'. Students decided upon the title for the piece based on a discussion of the movement of water; the freedom of natural water sources in contrast with humans' need to restrict and manipulate water; as well as water as a mode of transportation. Each of these themes were explored in the performance.

Year 7 and 8 Street Dance Club students performed The Water Dance, a Hip-Hop/ Street dance, based on the theme of water, promoting the characteristics of water through changing formations, dynamics and group relationships.  It is a funky and energetic piece, in which the dancers from Titus Salt took the lead in choreographing their own ideas and collating these within their final performance, which took place beside the canal in Shipley.

Literacy & Sculpture Project with Haworth based Sculptor, Craig Dyson

A lucky group of Year 9 Art students have designed and made their own sculpture, taking part in a week long masterclass project with Craig Dyson, a local sculptor who exhibits and sells his work both in the UK and abroad.

Inspiration for their sculpture came from a visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see the weird and wonderful work of Dennis Oppenheim, who creates ‘trees’ from found objects such as sinks, toilets, and washing machines. Enthused by Oppenheim’s integration of a hidden message in his work, our Year 9’s created their own ‘tree’ from aluminium, steel and copper, to represent their interpretation of the way man is destroying nature.

The students worked at Craig’s workshop in Haworth, with all his resources, equipment and tools at their disposal.  Craig was extremely impressed with the end product, and complemented the students on their creative ideas, motivation and skills.

The project combined a number of creative writing workshops with the practical work, designed to develop literacy skills. Miss Metcalfe and Mrs Graham encouraged the students to think and write creatively about the sculptures at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and later about their own finished piece of work.  

Local parents and their young children in Roberts Park were amazed and impressed by the creativity of our Year 8 Performing Arts students when they painted the ‘Graffiti’ wall in the children’s play area. Tag designs created in lessons inspired their work, which took three days to complete. Learning new art skills and being challenged to extend their learning by taking it from their books in the classroom to paint a real wall gave the students an exciting and rewarding experience.

Zara Malik spoke for everyone when she said ‘I would like to do more of this again, it’s fun! We made more stencils and learned how to use spray paint’. Mel Smith, Roberts Park Manager, collaborated with us and was happy to support the work of the students by preparing and coating the wall with masonry paint before they started.

Good community links add relevance and interest to students’ work. We have strong business links and work closely with voluntary groups, our local primary schools and other organisations. Our growing partnership with local providers is a real strength.

We are keen to be ‘community partners’. Students and staff are active members of local focus groups and attend local forums. As the lead secondary school within the Shipley Achieving Success (SAS) partnership we are proactive in our support with young people and their families. Our Extended School provision is wide ranging and offers opportunities to engage in after school and holiday clubs together with a wide range of workshops.
