Learning represented through Imaginative Artwork

Today, different classes worked together to think about how they can represent the concept of LEARNING through Art. The children were not allowed to use pencils or pens and had to be collaborative learners bringing together shared ideas to create these stunning creative pieces.

Each group was able to talk through how their creations were linked to learning. We were very impressed with all of the wonderful ideas that were shared.

Mrs Tricket is very excited to put each piece up for display to welcome us back into school in September.

Please take a momen to talk to your child about the ideas behind their pieces, I’m sure they will WOW you as they did us!

YEAR 5 BLYM Sailing

Year 5 have been so privileged to be given the opportunity to sail for 4 days this week. We have had our first session on Monday and the children loved every bit of it. We were lucky enough to catch some wind so we could sail off like experts that day. Today, the children lived the dream. The instructors have been kind enough to show each one of them how to capsize and eventually they all had a go at it. It was the best session, they said. We are really looking forward to the next two days and ready to learn more about sailing.
