Year 3 have had a fantastic time during Arts Week. We have taken part in dramatic productions, produced works of fine art, and enjoyed vocal and body percussion workshops.
Thank you to all of our parents/guardians for the contributions during our Elmer Project Day. We raised over £400 for St. Oswalds Hospice.
We are so excited for Elmer’s Great North Parade and cannot wait to see our Harton Primary School elephant on the trail. During our project day the children put forward their own design ideas and they were amazing. We cannot wait to share them with you.
Our Elmer sculpture is complete! It has been collected and is off to join the herd. Look out for our Harton Primary School sculpture, called ‘Proud to be me!’ during the summer holidays. The trail will begin in August. A huge thank you to every child that completed an Elmer design! The children have spent so long painting the sculpture and making sure it looked it’s very best before leaving our school. It looks AMAZING!
Y3D wrote a letter to their new teacher asking about what Year 4 would be like and letting them know any worries they may have. But… most importantly we drew a self portrait to show everything we love about ourselves and the hobbies we have reflected on our faces we may look wacky but we love them! Can you guess who is who?
The children in Year 6 have enjoyed a range of activities during Arts Week, in particular they enjoyed working with Daniel, a visiting artist to create some Apollo 13 themed pieces of artwork, which will soon be turned into a book to showcase the children’s work. Here are a few snaps of Year 6 hard at work.
Year 1 have had a fantastic but busy week celebrating The Arts this week. There’s been so many workshops and visitors the week has flown over!
Williby Roc’s came in to make art with the children using recycled materials.
Here they are creating dream catchers.
Year 1 had a brilliant time with Miss Smith learning a dance routine to perform with the whole school in assembly. They are amazing dancers!
Children used their hands, feet and voices to keep the beat and make a rhythm.
Year 3 had a fabulous fun packed drama day yesterday! We had Jenny who is a drama teacher in school to teach us all about the Roman Timeline through the use of drama. We learned lots of fun facts about the Romans and ended the day by piecing all of our talent together and putting on a Romans Performance for our parents!
This week is ARTS WEEK! We are so exciting and have started the week off adding our updated self-portraits for Year 3! We used lines and sketching to help us achieve some wonderful self-portraits.
We then looked at some pictures from our recent trip to Beamish Hall, we choose our favourite elements and created landscape watercolour paintings of the gardens. Take a look!
In our second week of Stop-Motion club, we made videos of Lego models, but with a twist. These model looked like they were building themselves – which was quite difficult.
Some of the children experimented with these videos, using their hands to cover or make models disappear.
Keep an eye out for future videos from the group.
