Mollie’s Christmas Snowman is a winner!

Congratulations to Mollie D (Year 11), overall winner of our Christmas card design competition. Mollie’s colourful snowman-making scene will grace our printed cards, delivered later this week. With just a simple “Season’s Greetings” message inside, the cards are ideal to send to friends and family and will be on sale for £1 each or in packs of five for £4 including envelopes if you would like to buy some. Ask at Reception!

Worthy runners-up, in joint second place, were Harry T (Reception) and Izzy W (Year 6), whose designs are also shown here. Well done to them, and to all who entered – we had some excellent designs this year!

Year 1 crafty candle decorations

Year 1 pupils have been making some beautiful, imaginative candle decorations in their DT lessons. The decorations include a hanging walnut shell and bright red-and-white fly agaric toadstools (very pretty but very poisonous so be careful if you find one growing!) as well as metallic-painted leaves and some fir cones.  This week in praise assembly, Matthias was specially mentioned for his meticulous creative work with this project and in the first picture you can see him crafting the toadstools using Fumo, which we cooked in chef Howard’s school oven. Well done, boys and girls!

Year 1 getting crafty

Year 1 have been working with Mrs Bird doing some metallic painting of plaster moulded leaves which they will make into Christmas decorations. Meanwhile,  Noah is shown here in a colour-mixing lesson, using a paint technique called “impasto”  which involves applying thick layers of paint in the style of Vincent van Gogh.  The sunflower pictures will be displayed in the Prep  corridor.
