Arts Week 2014

During the last week of term we held our fantastic arts week. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the week with its many and varied activities. The school was awash with paint, mod roc, 3D sculpture, models, musical sounds and singing. Each of the classes investigated a famous artist and recreated some of their most prestigious pieces. It was lovely walking around the school seeing all of the activities taking place and the creations starting to take shape.

The week also includes a visit from a real life composer and conductor, Philip Harper, for Key Stage 2 who talked about the life of a composer, his inspiration and did some improvised composing with the children. Mandi Baykaa-Murray a wildlife artist held workshops for the year 1 and 2 children; each of them creating artwork on a feather, which look brilliant. We also held our ‘Posh Togs and Wellies’ concert for KS2 parents. Despite having to be inside due to the weather it was a great event. Some of the audience and children still turned up in their wellies and were entertained by the choir and musical pieces from the children created during their curriculum music sessions.

Finally our Art Exhibition on Friday was very well attended by parents and friends who had come to see the ‘Create a Plate’ installation display as well as the final products of the week’s art work in the classrooms. It is always great to see so many parents come and support the children by coming to see work that the children have created.

A big thank you to the Creative Arts team of Miss Sperring, Mrs Long, Miss Price-Stephens and Miss Adachi who organised all of the events and activities along with the rest of the staff. It was a week to remember.
