Arts Award trip to Spike Island

This trip was amazing ! We went to Spike Island and met an artist called Kit. He showed us around the UWE section. We saw lots of different art work. Everything was fascinating. We made art work there as well! We really enjoyed the trip and once we had finished doing our art work we went round and looked at the UWE work.

The sun came out so the children built a den at lunchtime!

Children used gloves to create different emotions!

Awesome Artists…

Last year, pupils were offered the chance to achieve an Explore Arts Award, a national qualification recognised by the Arts Council England. The Award was a brilliant chance for students to develop their creative arts skills alongside vital life skills such as self-confidence,            communication and leadership, whilst taking part in a fun,creative project.

Throughout the project students took part in arts activities and developed new skills, attended and reviewed arts events, researched artists who inspire them and developed their communication and    leadership skills by passing on their art skills to other people.

We are very proud to share the successes of Rhiannon, Lily, Manaal, Esmé,  Megan, Alice, Cerys and Molly who, through their hard work, have all passed this award

This year it is 100 years since Roald Dahl was born. Last week Mrs Evans held an assembly telling us all about the life of Roald Dahl which was fascinating. We had a competition to see who was the favourite character from his books in our school. We were overwhelmed with the quantity of entries – clearly showing what a popular author Roald Dahl is.

The overwhelming winner was the BFG.

Runners up were Akesh (Year 3), Jamie (Year 5) and Esme (Year 6) who each won a book of their choice. The overall winner was Sian in Year 4 for her drawings and description of the Grand-High Witch from ‘The Witches’. She was the happy recipient of a £10 book voucher. Well done to all those who entered – it was very tough to judge them all!

Such an exciting start to term 1, including Bike checks in the sunshine today as part of our ongoing Bikeability training.

The term has started with the children carefully voting for their class School Council and Eco Representatives, I wonder who will win?
