Year seven students at Ratcliffe College, in Leicestershire, were given the task of recreating a life-sized replica of one of the school’s tractors, out of cardboard.

Inspired by artist Chris Gilmour, who makes life-sized cardboard replicas of all sorts of everyday items, the students spent time drawing, measuring and taking pictures of the school’s Massey Ferguson 230.

Dominic Berry, head of art and design said: “This was an incredibly ambitious project and it all had to be completed to a deadline for the finished piece to feature in an exhibition.

“The students have learnt about working as part of a large team, that they can strive for an ambitious goal and that they can achieve what others perceive as impossible.”
