Screen Printing Project

As part of our focus on art this year, we did a whole school screen-printing project with the illustrator, Mark Hearld and the themes of woodland or under the sea, as our inspirations.

The children have embellished their work, with additional stamping, printing, applique, sewing or weaving and all look fantastic.  Year 5 and 6 have created scenes under the sea, whilst the rest of the school chose a woodland creature to work with.  In addition to this, Year 3’s recent detailed drawing of fungi made its way to being the stimulus for their printing blocks.

The resulting banner is on display out the front of school and will remain there until Thursday, 22nd July.

Well done, everyone!

Axe Valley Wildlife Park Visit

This week Year 2 were all very brave when they welcomed Axe Valley Wildlife Park.  Giant stick insects; a Chinese water dragon; bearded dragons; a giant millipede; a corn snake and a royal python were amongst the visitors!  The children very much enjoyed learning about how they survive and adapt to their habitat.
