The Brighton Children's Parade
Every year we enjoy taking part in the children's parade which marks the opening of the Brighton Festival. The parade consists of around 80 schools marching through the centre of Brighton showing off their creative big makes and fabulous costumes. We invite all children from across the school to take part in the parade and provide workshops for parents to help design and make props and costumes. The event is always an enjoyable and fun day out for children and parents.
These are some of our entries:
Jubilee Art Exhibition
As part of our 60th diamond jubilee celebrations we held a whole school art exhibition. The children designed a range of different art works, studying artist's works and exploring different mediums. Each class looked at different genres of art and artists covering the decades of the past 60 years. Here are the results of their hard work:
St Anne Class 'Flowers'
St Bernadette Class 'Collage'
St Clare Class 'Landscapes'
St Francis of Assisi Class 'Sculpture'
St Margaret of Scotland Class 'Printing'
St Philip Howard Class 'Graffiti'
Blessed Mother Teresa Class 'Tattoos'
Local Artist Project
This term we have been lucky enough to welcome a local artist into our school. Bonny Cummins, a talented painter, has worked alongside a group of children to create some fantastic art work. One piece is a large canvas which now hangs in the school hall, the other is a metal plate displayed proudly on the school playground. The inspiration for the art work comes from the story of Noah's ark. The children drew and painted silhouettes of different animals going towards the ark two by two with a proud Noah welcoming them on board. The group work was thoroughly enjoyed by the children and it helped to build their independence, self esteem and confidence.
If you are a local artist hoping to work alongside children and inspire creativity then please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with the school Art and DT coordinators.
