Art Day!

Dear Parents/Carers,
On Friday 8th June 2018 we are having a whole school Art day. The theme of Art day is ‘Around the World’ and we will be looking at a range of art from different continents. Each year group will be given an artist or art movement to focus on. They will then produce a large piece of art that will be in the shape of a continent. By the end of the day, we hope to have a world map with a range of different pieces of art displayed onto it.
The day might get a little messy so if you would like to provide your child with an apron or large t-shirt to wear over their school uniform, please send it into school on the day with their name clearly labelled.
If you have any of the following items available at home, they would be really appreciated and will help the children to complete their artwork (straws, sticks, paper plates, cardboard and cotton buds).
We hope for it to be an informative yet creative day for everyone. Exhibitions will be held on the following days for parents to come and see the final world map.

EYFS/KS1 Art Exhibition – Tuesday 19th June at 3:30 in The Great Hall
KS2 Art Exhibition – Thursday 21st June at 3:30 in The Great Hall

Thank you
The Art Team

Parent helpers needed

We are asking if any additional parents would be able to come in to help with changing the reading books for the year 3 classes and read with some of our pupils.

Could any parent who is willing to help please send a note to the class teachers.

National Gardening Week

We have been creating the KS1 mindful garden over the last few weeks. Here are some images of the work we have been doing. Thank you to the Year 5 and 6 children for helping to create this area during Genius Time.

Thank you again for all the donations for this area. We will hope to finish this garden before half term and then start the KS2 mindful garden after half term.

GFK – Green Fingered Kids Scheme

This ‘home grown’ scheme was first established at Woodcote Garden Centre in 2005. When you spend over £10 in store, you will receive vouchers that will be exchanged by us for credits to spend on gardening equipment and plants.

The money that the vouchers provide will enable us to maintain our mindful gardens and buy equipment for Genius Time. If you receive any vouchers, please give them to a member of staff.

The scheme runs until the 31st July 2018.
