Year 5 Cartwright Hall and Lister Park

Today Year 5 went on a trip to Cartwright Hall and Lister Park, in Bradford. In the morning we had a workshop where we learnt about noticing things around us, sketching and printing. The children looked at the exhibitions and sketched different parts of artwork of their choice.  Their artwork was super and they tried so hard to create original prints.

After, we had a picnic outside in the sunshine. We then went for a walk around the lake and a play in the park.

Well done Year 5, you were very good at art and extremely well behaved and polite.

Well done!

Year 2 had an African Art Day

Hello again,

Year 2 had an African Art day which was made up of :

1 Drawing and painting a cartoon style lion.

2 Drawing an elephant using lead and charcoal.

3 Modelling an African Elephant.

Here are some pictures of the children learning, concentrating and creating some very impressive art work. The artist who visited also complimented the children on their attention to their art work and their beautiful behaviour. A good day was had by all involved.

Well done to you Year 2 – you’re amazing!

Investigating Shape in Reception!


This week we have all been learning about Diwali.

We learnt some Indian hand gestures and steps. Year 1,2,3 and 4 leant a little Diwali dance too and did extremely well. Year 6 enjoyed their Bollywood warm up and Year 5 and 6 did some fantastic writing on Diwali and Bandhi Chhor Diwas.

Here are a few photos of some Diwali artwork produced this week and Indian dancing.

A special “Thank you” goes to all the children in Year 3 and 4 who performed in our assembly on Tuesday morning. You were all amazing!
