Arts & Celebrations
We loved our drumming and dance workshops with Amasing in June 2021!
Arts / Awe & Wonder Week
Monday 1st March – Friday 5th March 2021
Inspired by the book ‘When the World Made a Rainbow’ by Michelle Robinson we invited the children to choose a colour from the rainbow and create their own self-portrait.
If you have not done so already, please listen the story via this link: https://youtu.be/E8587eUxY1g
Let’s paint a big rainbow to put on display
When people pass by it, they’ll see it and say.
“All rainstorms must end, and this rainstorm will too.”
And they’ll feel a bit happier, all thanks to you.
Look at these wonderful portraits...
Big Community Arts Day
Saturday 27th February 2021
We had planned to hold our Community Arts Day today but sadly due to the ockdown we were not able to hold it in school. We love nothing more than seeing families enjoying the arts together on our Community Arts Days so we developed an arts project to work on at home.
With World Book Day around the corner we invited families to listen to Captain Sir Tom Moore reading from his book ‘One Hundred Steps’.

“For all those of you finding it difficult, the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away. Remember, tomorrow will be a good day.”

‘Elements of Halton’
Halton Primary Arts Network Project 2021
We were due to take part in the Halton Primary Arts Network exhibition at Runcorn Shopping City in February but due to government restrictions sadly it was cancelled. The theme for the project was Elements of Halton and following discussions with our Arts Ambassadors we decided to focus our school project around the River Mersey and its significance for transport of people and industrial goods.
This is a fantastic opportunity for children to get creative whilst learning about the history of Halton and we would like to welcome children to take part from home. We created an online art gallery for children to admire each other’s work and set up our own exhibition in school when the children return.
Check out these fantastic projects...
We have recently appointed three new Arts Ambassadors from reception who will join our existing children to consult on ideas for future arts projects, foci for after school clubs and the planning and evaluation of Arts Weeks and Community Arts Days. They will also be responsible for gathering thoughts from children in their class on matters relating to the arts.
