Celebrating Key Workers


Dear Parents/Carers,
As a school we would like to celebrate key workers with a variety of art work designed by you.  This will not just be for NHS staff  but all key workers who you feel deserve our thanks.
There are many different ways you can approach your art work, this could be a painting, black and white sketches, colouring pencils, collages using any materials you can find around your home or garden, the ideas are endless.  I have attached a painting which I completed with my son last week and is now displayed in my window.  The idea is to have fun either working on your own or with your family/carers.
Once you have completed your art, please send a photo of your work (or you holding your work if you are happy to be on the school website/school display) to the school office along with your full name, age and class.  Your work will then be published on the school website under Teaching and Learning, Art and D.T.  My plan is also to make a collage of all your amazing art work and display it in the school once we return.
Have fun and stay safe.
Mrs Wade
Year 5 Teacher and Art/D.T Lead

Welcome to the new academic year.

Now the children are settled into their new classes we will be starting the Artist if the Week again. 

Will your work appear this year? Watch this space!


Wow, what an amazing week! 

Our topic this year was Our Planet. We focused on the natural world and how it is so important to look after it. 

As a school, we will be creating a pathway close to the pond area for 2019-2020. Each of the children had the opportunity to paint a pebble with acrylic paint with themes such as animals and landscapes.

Some of the projects completed by the children were clothes-peg owls, spider webs, painting and sketching landscapes, making kites and windsocks.

Look at our amazing work cool

Artists of Term 6

Art Week: Tuesday 25th, Thursday 27th and Friday 28th June.


Our topic this year is Our Planet.  We will be focusing on the natural world and how it is important to look after it.  Our plan is to re-vamp the quiet area by the pond with the children’s artwork whilst also incorporating outdoor learning.


We have many activities planned to ensure we cover different areas of the Art and Design Technology curriculum.  In order for your child to enjoy the activities without making a mess of their school uniform, could you please ensure they bring in an art apron/old t-shirt to protect their clothing.


I hope the children area as excited as we are.

Congratulations to our first Artist of the Week - Indianna M

Barming Children bring a smile this festive season


Most of us will look forward to Christmas, enjoying the festival and spending time with family and friends.  Unfortunately, for many older people the festive season can be a difficult and lonely time.  As part of the Christmas Friendship Appeal, the children have been working hard to make their own Christmas cards which have been sent to an MHA resident or Live at Home Scheme member to bring joy this year and really make a difference.  We would like to thank all the children for showing their artistic skills and sharing the joy of Christmas with the older people in care.
