As part of our Wow Day to launch the topic, ‘Who first lived in Britain?’, Year 3 designed and made Stone Age replica necklaces. First of all we looked at some photographs of Stone Age necklaces and discussed the materials that these were made from. Using these ideas as a prompt, we designed our own.
We then made our necklaces using clay. We had to make sure there were no cracks in any our pieces.
A few days later, we painted our necklaces and threaded them onto string.
Wow! We can’t believe how beautiful they look!

In Year 2 as artists we have been drawing, colouring and painting some of our circus friends. Today we made some wonderful clowns. We sketched a clowns face and once we were happy we outlined our drawing in black then we used oil pastels, coloured pens and paints to colour in our clowns. Haven’t we done a fabulous job?
Children from different year groups have been working hard to create a fabulous hoarding panel that will be used whilst building work takes place during construction of the new foot-bridge over Clive Sullivan Way. Look at the link below to see how they did it…
Year 3 and 4 have been learning about French Artist Henri Rousseau.
They have looked at his famous art pieces and used these as inspiration for their own art.
We think they look fabulous!
This week was very exciting for some of our Y6 children. As part of our Trust-wide Y6 project this year, children from all 11 schools submitted artwork to be displayed in one of the gallery spaces in Princess Quay. The work can be seen Mon-Sat (9:30am-5:30pm) and Sunday (10am-4:30pm) all this week!
Today, the 16 children chosen to have their work displayed took a trip to the gallery to see their work professionally displayed. All of the work produced by other schools is fantastic as well – well done Y6
Our Peter Thorpe inspired paintings.
