Reading makes us HAPPY!
Reading makes us HAPPY!
Well….our first week back after half term has been a busy one! The children thoroughly enjoyed Arts Week, learning about new artists and having the opportunity to learn, practice and consolidate their newly learnt skills and techniques. This week has really highlighted that there are some fine young artists amongst us.
Throughout the week the children moved around their Key Stage, being taught by different teachers within the school. The teacher focused on one of their most favourite artists, teaching the children about the artist, showing some example of that artists work, and teaching the techniques needed to accomplish their own master piece inspired by their most favourite arts of the week.
We hope the children enjoyed their week, coming home and telling all that they had learnt and experienced. We also hoped you enjoyed the gallery viewing of all the children’s work. We appreciated your comments that you made and look forward to feeding this back to the children. Please see the photos that the teachers have taken of the children hard at work.
If you would like to see some of the master pieces in all their glory there will be a few pieces displayed in our ‘Wall of Frame’ which can be located outside of Mr Clarke’s office.
