Dear Parents and Friends
Well this week has been fantastic with so many artists helping the children to explore a variety of different mediums to create absolutely wonderful pieces of work. All the children have had the opportunity to take part in six different workshops over the first three days and then learnt the art of street dance at the end of the week to perform a dance battle on Friday.
The atmosphere around the school during this week has been wonderful and inclusive with the older children helping the younger ones within their groups and supporting each other throughout the experience.
Our thanks must go to Ione Rucquoi and Georgia Munday for helping to coordinate and support this amazing event throughout the week; running workshops and generally getting their hands dirty. There have been so many parents and volunteers who have come in to help ensure that the workshops have run smoothly and I would like to thank you all for your time and commitment to the children; it has made a real difference to how well the week has run and we couldn’t have managed without you. Thank you.
Next week will be fairly normal in comparison to this week however on Monday we do have the artist Peter Randall-Page coming in at 2pm to share his experiences and knowledge of the world of art with the children and to celebrate his kind sculpture installation to the school. You are all welcome to come along and listen to this fascinating acclaimed artist.
Reports will be issued by Friday 12th July and you are welcome to talk to the teachers regarding your child’s report at any point during the final week.
Have a lovely weekend.
