Christmas has come early…

Thank you so much to everyone who came and joined in with our Christmas card making day. It was so lovely to see so many adults come to make cards with the children. The cards look fantastic and we can’t wait to see what they look like when they are professionally printed. The Year 6 children did a brilliant job preparing all the resources and the PTA were fantastic at keeping the day running (and the room clean!)

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!

The Great Felt of London! 28.2

 

Today in Year 1 & Year 2 we had an exciting felt workshop as part of art enrichment week.

After creating some incredible silhouettes in art the past few weeks, children were able to recreate their work using felt. The children learnt about stretching the material, felting it using nets and soap and finally rolling it using a massive wooden roller. Year 1 and 2 saw the rolling as a good opportunity to practice some maths!

The felt pieces are going to be ready for their grand unveiling later in the term at open classroom!
