Arts Week - June 2022
Queen's Platinum Jubilee Lunch May 2022-
The children had an amazing party where all the staff helped serve the children. We all sang 'God Save the Queen' after we had finished our lunch. We were then lucky to have Egremont Town Band perform songs to us all to finish off the day. The children even got to join in with some of the music the band played.
The children thoroughly enjoyed a trip out to the Beacon museum in Whitehaven. The purpose of the visit was for the children to see a first hand painting (The House of Cards by Chardin) from the National Gallery in London. The children worked alongside an artist to create a piece of artwork based around the painting. The finished work was then added to the exhibition in the gallery.
The children have had a great time during 'Maths Week'. We had 'Imagination Gaming' in on Monday and Tuesday, and lots of parents got involved with the fun too. The children made their own games for homework; they've explored the school and grounds looking for maths in our environment; Year 2 visited the kitchen to see maths in action; Year 5 and 6 had visitors from the Primary Business Partnership; Year 6 completed a 'Snackshop Enterprise Challenge'; the children made maths trails together; classes completed a code trail. What a wonderful way to learn about Maths!
Bookwell Carol Concert
Our annual carol concert entertained the congregation with a trip around the world. Readings and songs were taken from a variety of countries such as Jamaica, Czech Republic and Germany as well as the Christmas story retold in French. We also took a moment to reflect on the 100 years since the end of World War 1 and made a wish for peace on Earth.
We were inspired by many artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and Richard Shilling. We enjoyed exploring the outdoors and finding different was of creating patterns, using natural materials, weaving and creating our own wallpaper designs using leaf rubbings.
