Whole School Art Project

We have been working hard to create a beautiful new piece of art work to welcome visitors at our school entrance. All children across school worked with a local artist for a week to create this stunning work of art, well done everyone!

Planter Competition

This half term, every class at school has been taking part in a Planter competition. Each class had their own planter, which they filled with plants and decorated so that it looked beautiful.  All the planters looked fantastic, so it was very hard to choose a winner but school council decided that Willow 2, Oak 2 and Elm 1 were the winners.  Well done everybody!

Digital Art in Rowan 2

Rowan 2 has been using Purple Mash online to create some beautiful pieces of art based on Mondrian. They explored a variety of pictures of shapes and used their preferred method of communication to state what they could see in the art. They then got the chance to create their own using 2paintapicture. Pupils used their early writing skills to create both horizontal and vertical lines. They really enjoyed using technology to support their learning.

An Inspector Calls on Maple 2

Maple 2 and WIllow 2 received a visit from PC Simon and PCSO Maria this week. Our visitors talked to the pupils about rules and what our school, and community would be like without them. We soon came to realise how difficult and unpleasant our world might become without any boundaries. The pupils learnt how important rules are to keep everyone safe. PC Simon set the pupils a challenge to write down one rule golden rule they are trying hard to abide by and they will share it with them on their next visit. Thank you for coming and spending so much time answering all the questions.
