Arts Week – Day 2

It has been another fun-filled day at Manor Farm!

Year 3

Year 3 began the day doing some street dance, with Vicky to Fleur East’s new song ‘Sax’ which they thoroughly enjoyed!

They also continued to practise their traditional London songs and began sewing their fish for their fish and chips dish, out of colourful felt!

Year 4

Year 4 have been busy creating a collage with British sweet wrappers and city names which look fantastic! They also painted their final colourwash for their cityscapes and some children went to the computer suite to create a word art style piece. Regarding their wow factor, they have made an excellent start by rolling up newspaper. I wonder if you can guess what their wow factor is going to be!

Lastly, Year 4 also took part in dance with Vicky, shaking and bobbing along to a modern mash up of funky tunes!

Year 5

Year 5 have been thinking big today! They created a huge, colourful piece of artwork to represent Grayson and Perry’s comfort blanket (search it online if you are unsure of what this is.. I had to!). This shows plenty of things that are to do with Britain and every child took part.

They finished off their flags and their papier mache, although they had a small disaster with some of the papier mache sticking to the bowls and therefore Ms Wolfe and Mrs Lindridge had to go to the rescue!

Tomorrow they are looking forward to some dance and cooking!

Year 6

Year 6 have created 3 different pieces of art today! Firstly, we began by painting paper plates to show a British countryside, with the rolling hills and blue sky (Britain on a good day of course), not forgetting the odd sheep and cow! This is now ready for us to begin weaving a tree.

Because of Miss Bartropp’s sneaky trips to Homebase, we were also able to create our city skylines using paint colour cards! We had to stick the backs of them together using masking tape, and then, using rulers, we had to very carefully draw on the city skyline using silhouette pictures. We have created skylines from cities all over the country such as Glasgow, Peterborough, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol. The final pieces look very effective!

Lastly, we created a brain collage! The children were asked, for homework, to bring in lots of different pictures associated with Britain from magazines, newspapers and the internet. Throughout the day they had their picture taken. This was not an ordinary picture, they were asked to look upwards as though they were looking shocked and happy at all the things emerging from their brains. Using the pictures, we made a collage above their heads showing how their brains are exploding with images and thoughts of Britain! The children were excellent at this and we are so pleased with how well their collages have turned out.

The Power of One Assembly – Anti-Bullying

This afternoon we had a very good assembly called ‘The Power of One’ which discussed different types of bullying such as verbal bullying, physical bullying and cyber bullying. We learnt about the roles of the bully and the target, and discovered that the bystanders can be just as bad as the bully if they see bullying and ignore it or encourage it even more. Some of the children were even given the opportunity to perform a drama at the front of the stage and at one point this even involved Charlie Simons with pom-poms… what a sight!

‘The Power of One’ refers to the power that anyone can have to make a difference and stop bullying. It was a very important message to relay to the children and we learnt that it is important to RESPECT and TOLERATE each other, even if we don’t necessarily like or get along with someone. As these are some of the British Values, this linked perfectly to our Arts Week theme!

    I just love arts week, it is very fun and I will miss doing it when I am at secondary school because they might not do it so we (year 6’s) have to be good so then it doesnot let it go to go to waste at the end of the week. I wonder who is going to win the flag compotion!!!!!
