Art Masterclass with artist, Peter Partington

Last week Year 5 and 6 were very fortunate to work with Peter Partington a wildlife artist who came into school to give the children a masterclass on how to draw a range of birds.

He spent 45 minutes with each class showing them the shapes and proportions of each bird. Each child had a go after his guidance and all produced some great sketches.

The children will be given more time to draw in detail one of these birds, ready to display as part of the exhibition in the Church on Saturday 8th November. The church will be open between 10:30 am and 4.00 pm if you wish to see their pictures.

Our Maths Curriculum afternoon was a great success. It was great to see so many parents, grandparents and governors joining in with our problem solving afternoon. We finished off the afternoon with a MacMillan Coffee afternoon and it was great to sample some of year sixes’ baking.
