The Arts Council met this week to judge the winners of the Christmas Art Competition. Well done to Dom and Lola-Mai who were chosen as our two winners. Thank you to the children who entered - there were lots and the standard of the art work was brilliant.
DRAMA CHALLENGE: The whole school is getting really excited about this afternoon's performance of sleeping beauty. the Arts Council have set a challenge for each class to try out a drama activity linked to the story. Your challenge may involve hot-seating a character, creating a tableaux of a scene, re-enacting a bit or even putting on your own mini panto. We can't wait to hear how you get on. Drama rocks!
Thank you to everyone who has contributed their art work to our gallery. Well done to the Arts Council for making such a great job of the display. Keep an eye on the weekly themes and feel free to send in your arty contributions.
Huge thanks to everyone who has brought in homework on the theme of Autumn. The gallery will be up and running this week and your fabulous work will be on display in the hall. Remember this week the theme is food. Yum! Yum!
Park Street’s Gallery of Art
We (children on the Arts council) have noticed that lots of children enjoy painting, drawing, model making and craft at home. We think it would be great if we have a weekly theme for children who enjoy being creative to have a go at. Basically pupils and staff are welcome to have a go at creating a piece of art work based on a weekly theme. If any master pieces can be handed in to the Arts Council we will put all the homework on display to form a gallery in the hall. Here are the themes for next half term. The idea is children have a week to work on a piece of art based on the theme and it will go on display the week after. Children will need to add their name and class to the back of their work. Grownups are more than welcome to join in!
Themes to base your art work on

After a really successful meeting the Arts Council have agreed on some really exciting ideas which they will be launching over the second half of the Autumn Term.
1. Christmas artwork competition: Billy came up with a fantastic idea. He has suggested we run a competition through school where all pupils are invited to enter a piece of artwork based on the theme of Christmas. The Arts council agreed this was a fab idea and suggested we collect some prizes. The team felt it would be appropriate to have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for each phase of school (EYFS, KS1 and KS2).
2. Display for budding artists to share their work: This week Hayley brought it to the attention of the Arts Council that she thinks lots of children enjoy painting and drawing at home and that it would be a great idea to display their work in school. She added that this may even encourage children to come of their tablets and devices and get more creative.
