Big Community Arts Day

Thank you to everyone who attended our Community Arts Day on Saturday 12th October 2019, it was a pleasure to see so many of you.

Children and families enjoyed a wide range of art and craft activities such as creating their own autumn trees, experimenting with colour mixing to create different effects and making picture frames. Children got the chance to make bracelets and crowns. They also enjoyed exploring a range of musical instruments to add sounds to different fairy tale stories.

We really enjoyed getting to see everyone’s artistic and musical skills and we are looking forward to our next event in the summer term.

Arts Ambassadors

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.

Halton Primary Arts Network Exhibition

The theme for Halton Schools Art’s Project 2020 is ‘Tokyo 2020. Year 2 have been working on developing a magnificent display during Arts Club. 

Arts Week

The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed our annual Arts Week and the high level of involvement and enjoyment was evident in the productive and pleasant atmosphere in each class.

The children engaged in a wide range of activities that explored all areas of the arts, including Art, Music, Dance, Drama and Creative Writing. The secure cross curricular links enabled breadth of experience, individual expression and consolidation of ideas.

The activities were challenging and engaging, with a wide range of resources supporting the development of knowledge and skills.

In the words of the children:

“I like painting, I love mixing colours. I can make all different shades of a colour.”

“When it’s finished it feels really nice, really amazing!”

“This is the best week ever. I love all the fun things we do.”
