Head’s Blog – 30th April 2021
We have had a very art inspired week this week at Clearwell, supporting one of our curriculum drivers to be creative. Firstly, Jer Gazzard, a fellow teacher, friend and artist came in to paint a ‘Wow Tree’ in our corridor. I am sure that you will agree, the finished product is absolutely phenomenal. I love the fact he has also inspired our children, just look at this painting on a rock by a year 4 pupil who is also painting some glass at home. We love it!
Oak class have been having fun (improving their gross motor skills) mashing up the Evil Pea from “Supertato”. They have also been creating a scene from the Great Fire of London, they have captured the colours spectularly.
Willow class have been able to go swimming this week, which was brilliant for all of them. Many of our children, like the rest of the population, had not been swimming for over a year. Lots of certificates were issued to some of the beginners group, showing the progress that they made during their first session. There are a number of children who can already swim so did not get certificates but I know that are doing well.
Mrs Griffiths also started our Upper Key Stage Two book club. They are meeting weekly to discuss the same book, Holes by Louis Sacher. They came out so excited this week it inspired someone who isn’t in the club to read the book - success all round.
