We are enjoying progressing along our Artsmark journey.  We have submitted our Statement of Committment and are developing the assessment of life skills in school.  Teachers have had training on arts areas and this is filtering through to our young people.  Skills days ensure the progression of skills and coverage of these important aspects of learning for life.  

Artsmark Celebration week runs from 7th - 11th October and we are celebrating with a variety of visiting artists to school.  We have a spinner, two painters with very different styles, an animator from the Lego movies, a fused glass artist, a fibre artist, a pianist and a florist.  The children are thoroughly enjoying the week.

Following the visit from Wendy, one of our painters, one child was found sitting at the Class 1 easel painting quietly.  He said to his TA,, "I didn't know I was an artist!"  Testament indeed to the impact of such visits.  There is a real buzz around school and an enthusiasm from parents too.  A number have approached Mrs Battersby on the playground to say what an impact the visits are having, how they are broadening horizons and how their child is coming home brimming with enthusiam for all they have seen.  How wonderful!
