We were all super excited when Jeremy Gazzard (a teacher and talented friend) arrived at Clearwell on Wednesday with the mural he had painted for our KS1 library. The pupils had decided on their favourite characters which he included in his final piece of art. Who can you spot?
What we didn’t know was that he came prepared to paint another mural on our wall too! The pupils got to watch him paint as they went about their school day. Jeremy said how lovely the children were and how interested they were in what he was creating. If only I had as much talent as he has in his little finger! We are so fortunate and grateful to Jer for doing this for us, as well as inspiring pupils by seeing what is possible. He even read the children a story!
Contributing to our Community
Being a Collabomera is one of our key learning behaviours and this week this has been in abundance at Clearwell. One of our year 3 pupils spent his weekend creating a mud kitchen for the children to play with. I am sure that you all agree that the finished product is superb.
Then today, all of Willow helped weed our local community. Most of the class spent an hour clearing up their creative play area whilst a team went into the village and gave the monument the pampering it deserves; it has been there since the 14th Century. I am so proud of all of them. We know that people in the village are grateful as they were thanking the children when they were doing it.
