A lovely example from Layla. Thank you for sharing this with us!
The children that are attending school have been working hard and today did an art activity – they looked at the famous painting by Kandinsky – called Concentric Circles and had a go at recreating it using pencils, pastels and paint. This is great to do at home with some colouring pens or pencils.
Have a try at home and email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put them on the blog for you.
I hope you are keeping safe and well.
Best wishes, Mrs Simmons
Mrs Simmons here! We are having problems letting you post pictures in the comments. If you email them to the school email – email@example.com I will create a blog post with them all in. I hope you are all keeping safe. We miss you, but hope to see you all as soon as we can.
The Year 5 children arrived safely at Hooke Court yesterday and have been having a brilliant time. They have had a very muddy experience in WW1 trenches and enjoyed singing some songs from that era.
The Hooke Court staff have also commented on how well they have all eaten – the clearest plates of any school they have had!
All had a good nights sleep and are thoroughly enjoying the experience.
Art Club created pieces in the Fauvism modern artistic style today.
One of our Year 6 pupils decided that the school needed new school sports kit to wear during the Town and County sports events to be held during June. Together with her friend, over £295 has been raised by handcrafting bookmarks and key rings which have been sold at various events. They have also raised money through organising cake sales.
We are really proud of the independence that these pupils have shown and of their hard work and dedication in achieving their aim. Amazing team spirit – well done girls!
Year 4 have been putting their printing blocks to excellent use in order to create volcano patterns.
