Little workers on Open Morning!

We can’t resist sharing these pictures from last Saturday’s Open Morning….

In the first image, some of our Year 2 pupils are demonstrating their creative skills for visitors to admire, while the rest show Year 1’s little Van Goghs hard at work. The children have been studying the life and work of the famous French Impressionist and have been really enthusiastic about his colourful sunflowers!

Paintings and poems by Year 3

After learning all about the life and work of the artist Vincent Van Gogh, Year 3 have produced their own beautiful paintings. Their pictures have been inspired by the Van Gogh paintings ‘Self-Portrait’, ‘Sunflowers’ and ‘Starry Night’. We are very pleased with the results and more of their work can be seen on display in the Prep School.
