We loved finding out about all the brilliant dance work going on is school and were blown away by all your support for the Christmas Art competition so we thought we would organise a new competition. It was decided during this weeks meeting that we would like to run a whole school poetry competition for you to have a go at over the Easter holidays. Watch this space for more details and information.
Huge thanks to everyone for updating us with even more exciting dance activities this half term. We found out KS1 classes have been learning traditional dances from around the UK. Lower KS2 have been developing dance sequences in PE looking at different shapes and balances. Upper Key Stage 2 have been working on dances to modern songs - some children have asked to show their finished pieces in assembly - we can't wait. FS pupils have been enjoying dance as part of their Chinese New Year Celebrations. Amazing stuff Team Park Street!
The Arts Council would just like to say a huge well done to the members of the school choir who performed at the DSA Sheffield Arena. It was a fantastic night and we are very proud of you all. Parents and school staff said you were all totally brilliant WELL DONE!!!!
Huge thank you to all the pupils who got involved with the Art Council Christmas Arts competition. Well done to the winner in each class. We loved looking at your creative ideas for baubles and Santa suites. We also enjoyed the poetry, music drama and dance. Well done you arty lot! The Arts Council would like to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas.
The Arts Council met today and have made the following decisions.
- The Council will be running a Christmas poster competition. All children are invited to enter a Christmas poster. Arts Council will be delivering instructions for each class and Mrs Longden will be sending a letter out to grown ups.
- The Arts Council will be running a Christmas assembly. The assembly will be an opportunity for pupils to perform or show arts work. We would ask that any drama, dance, arts, music or poetry be based on a Christmas or Winter Theme. Exciting stuff!!!
Huge thanks from Roman, Leo, Maisie-Jo, Lola, Jaxon, Mia, Maia and Millie (The Arts Council) to pupils and staff for completing the class Arts survey. We have been thrilled to find out about all the exciting arts activities you have been up to. We are still going to plan some dance ideas. Watch this space for news of the Christmas Arts Competition.
The Arts Council have decided to have a fortnight to focus on dance. We have created a questionnaire for classes. What dance have you been working on recently in class? What do you enjoy about dance? How could we make dance at Park Street even better? Just some of the questions we will be looking to answer. Watch this space for a summary of findings.
Just a quick reminder to all you budding artists out there. The pupil arts council will be running an art competition based on the theme of Autumn. All pupils are welcome to take part. A lucky winner will be chosen from EYFS, KS1 and KS2. The winners will receive a pack of arty goodies. The winners will be chosen by Mrs Longden and the Arts Council members. Good luck and get arty!
A warm welcome to the new member of the Arts Council who were voted for by their classmates. It was wonderful to see you all collecting your badges in front of parents at the special jobs assembly.
We would love to know about all the exciting Arts activities that classes will be taking part in this half term. At our meeting today we have put together a survey for each class to share what they will be doing. Watch this space for a summary of results. Can't wait to hear about all the exciting learning taking place!
