Enrichment Week



The children have really enjoyed enrichment week with the chance to experience different activities outside their normal time table. 


Nightingale class studied abstract art based on work by the artist Kazimir Malevich. They created a giant piece of abstract art using chalk and then painted abstract art which they turned into a poem. They invented portal stories based on an art gallery and described and painted a picture that they would climb into.  Finally, they made biscuits based on abstract art designs. 


Einstein created a giant collaborative class model of a spider and cooked healthy muffins. Along with Shakespeare class, they enjoyed a fantastic music and movement session with Mark White which included lots of fun activities with the piano, voice and Boomwhackers. 


Shakespeare class created mood boards and tie-dyed fabric and t-shirts. They learnt how to weave paper to make mats and wove their tie-dyed fabric using looms. They also enjoyed baking healthy muffins. 


Rosa Parks enjoyed drawing emojis, learnt all about the Pop-Art movement and created some fantastic Pop-Art pictures. They experienced a brilliant day trip to Shepton Mallet Prison. 


Malala went with Rosa Parks to The Bishop's Palace and took part in an amazing opera workshop.  They also had fun tie-dying t-shirts and fabric. 


On Thursday, all the children participated in a Martial Arts taster session with Jaime Day from Matt Fiddes Martial Arts School. It was an energetic and fun session which they all enjoyed. 


Finally, the children all enjoyed making class collaborative bunting using upcycled materials with the textile artist, Jan Ollis,  from ChiChiMoi. They sewed and coloured a variety of animal designs to create their own colourful, class bunting.
