Welcome to the new Arts Council 2022-2023!
We have already had our first meeting of the year to talk about what plans we have for the future.
Our first project will be a collaborative piece of art to celebrate 70 years of Sir Francis Hill Primary School. Keep an eye out for the finished piece!
After working really hard on our fantastic portrait of Sir Francis Hill, we have more projects on the go. We have signed up to take part in the Doddington Hall Scarecrow Competition this year, so keep an eye out for our entry. We worked with the Eco Warriors to create a sustainable scarecrow which sends an important message about pollution in the ocean.
We, as an arts council, will also be judging our school's Guy Fawkes competition in preparation for our Bonfire Night celebrations on Friday 4th November.
Christmas hanging decoration and poetry competition
In December we held a hanging decoration (EYFS, KS1 and KS2) and a poetry competition (KS2) and were inundated with entries. It was really hard for our Arts Council to choose a winner, but they eventually chose two - see below.
We are taking part in the St Barnabas Heart sculpture trail this year. Arts council have been designing the heart they would like to create for this summer's trail. Keep an eye out for our final choices and us making our heart.
Arts Council are teaming up with our reading ambassadors to make bookmarks to sell at parent's evening this year. We are very excited to share our creativity with others in school and encourage reading at the same time!
We met with artist James Sutton to talk about a new and exciting sculpture we are planning to install in the school grounds. We looked at examples of his work and started to gather ideas. We will meet next week to look at and share our ideas. Later in the year, we might even get to visit James at his workshop, to see our project in the making!
View the link below to see examples of his work!
April and May
We have been busy completing our St Barnabas 'Love Lincolnshire' heart in preparation for the trail this summer. We delivered it to the showground last week and look forward to seeing it on display in the Waterside Shopping Centre from June.
Our heart is now on display in the Waterside Centre for you to visit as part of the St Barnabas 'Young at heART' trail!. Let us know if you see it!
Nearly the end of the year and the last few days of our arts council being together. We have had a second visit from artist James Sutton to work on creating our new school sculpture. Today, the children worked together to draw the class animals and compose a possible final piece idea. See our ideas below. The children thoroughly enjoyed their morning.
A new year, a new Arts Council. Children from Y1-Y6 were elected as the new school council members. Our first job is to set competitions for the whole school, starting with Food Day posters!
We will then look at ways to promote art further across school, as well as work closely with EYFS in supporting their development of drawing. Watch this space!
