Our Topic this term is
'Gallery Rebels'

Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone...Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels!

Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought, or an idea?

Dream the dream - or show us your nightmares! What do you see? Watches melting? Wheels spinning? A shark in a box? Can you express yourself without words? Well, a picture paints a thousand of them!

Try your hand at a 'Damien Hirst' sculpture, exploring the weird and wonderful to create a curious treasure from the next generation.

Take up your arms and fight for the cause... Paintbrushes and sketch books at the ready - let's make art!

Cycle Training

This week, some of the year 6 children have been taking part in Cycle training.

The children have had a brilliant time, where they have learnt how to cycle safely on roads, using signals.

Well done all involved!

Kinetic Theatre

The year 6 children had a wonderful day spent at Blakeney.

The children took part in some SATs practise in the morning, before watching a theatre production by the Kinetic theatre production.

The children really enjoyed the production and a huge thank you to the Dean Academy for the kind donation of their minibus for the day! Well done all!

KNEX Challenge

Hockney class started off 2019 in style by taking part in the KNEX Challenge.

The children had a wonderful visit from Mo, who set the children the challenge of making a lever, pulley or pick up to place a block of cheese onto a shelf.

There were a number of requirements there mechanism had to meet and the children worked well in small groups to achieve this.

Well done to Cody and George H for being chosen to represent the School at the County Finals in May!
