Christmas Corridor Displays|
Once again, the corridors of Barnacre were transformed overnight for the Christmas period. After hours of hard work by children and staff, the school corridors became unrecognisable and sent the children into magical lands! The year 3/4 display told the story of Cinderella whilst the year 5/6 corridor transported the pupils to Treasure Island. Looking at photos does not do the displays justice so please take the time to watch the videos below.
Today we represented Barnacre Road Primary School at the war memorial to remember and pay tribute to all those who have lost their lives fighting for our country, both past and present.
What better way is there to end our first half term than with a whole school art week?
After our fantastic Environment Day, it made sense to theme our art week on NATURE. We are so lucky that our school is situated in the beautiful town of Longridge with its fantastic views of the hills. Because of this we didn’t have to look far for inspiration. Our children experienced so many forms of creativity from sculpture to print making to creating 3D caves using some very clever mathematical thinking, the results were quite simply stunning.
I must say that all of the children and staff fully embraced this week of creativity with such excitement and positivity. We explained to the children that the end product was not the most important part of the week, but that being willing to have a go and show persistency was what it was really all about. To enjoy the process of creating something is as important as the final product. These are skills not only important for art but life in general.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this week, especially to our parent helpers and our fantastic Artist Sarah Hicks. Sarah worked with two of our classes and produced some amazing work which I know the children absolutely love and are very proud of.
We hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of the children’s work and our exhibition on Friday.
We look forward to the next one…
