Pupils at a Boston school explored one of the world’s most famous artists, writers and inventors in a day themed around the man’s works.

Year Seven students at Boston High School, aimed their lessons around Renaissance artist Leonardo Da Vinci recently - including looking at his Vitruvian theory in mathematics, his writing an poetry in English, his inventions in science and his theories of the heart in PE.

The school’s director of performing arts Abi Clayton said: “The day placed a particular emphasis on developing higher order thinking skills, problem solving and creativity.

“By the end of the day students were able to make connections between set learning objectives and experience how individual lessons can be linked to a single topic.”

A display in reception has incorporated the students work and was used to intrigue them during the day.
