Check out the updated Great Linford Primary Gallery to see a selection of amazing artwork over the past few weeks. Featured along the main corridor, the gallery showcases some art highlights and is where you can see what other year groups are doing in art this term. Check regularly to see if your art is appearing on the gallery this week!
To commemorate Remembrance Day 2018, every year group across the school has produced beautiful artwork inspired by the poppy appeal. Each year group has been working with different mediums and techniques to show off the stunning poppy.
EYFS were using finger painting to create their poppy flowers. Year 1 created a beautiful wreath made from their hands and adorned with the poppy flower. Year 2 used tissue paper and green card. Year 3 created lifelike poppies made from paper and pipe cleaners. Year 4 used their pottery skills to create poppies. Year 5 put their sewing skills to the test by making handmade sewn poppies from felt. Finally, Year 6 used collage techniques to create stunning big poppies.
The art work looks beautiful and complemented a beautiful assembly. The children heard about the importance of the First World War as well as the fact this year is a special commemoration of the end of the war because it has been 100 years. Some children read out letters written by soldiers from the trenches describing the conditions and Year 6 children performed poetry they had written reflecting on the importance of remembrance.
Year 5 have begun their cooking sessions this week which will happen every Friday this half term. This week the children were discussing kitchen safety and how important it is. They created rules and made a poster to show how to be safe in the kitchen environment. Look out for next week's blog when we reveal their first dish!
Year 5 have been working hard to create their very own space inspired patch! We have learnt three different stitches: zig zag, cross stitch and running stitch. All the children have worked extremely hard to recreate their own design using the sewing techniques. They have used a variety of materials to create planets, stars, rockets and even astronauts. The year 5 team are very proud of them and Miss Scoggins will be displaying a selection in our school gallery in the main corridor. Well done year 5!
Last night, Taiba, Liam, Zavier and Alfie attended the shortlisting preview evening for MK Gallery Architect 2018. The Event was held in the project space opposite the main gallery building. After getting a chance to see our model in the exhibition, we listened with anticipation to find out the winners from this year's competition. I am extremely pleased and proud to announce that Great Linford Primary received the Highly Commended award for our category 7-10 years!! (This meant we were the top in our category!)
Over 260 entries were submitted with only 90 being shortlisted, so we are extremely proud of the children for all their hard work and commitment. The gallery is hoping to come and do a special assembly in the next few weeks to celebrate and present the children with certificates and goody bags.
You can go and see their work 'MK Waves' in the MK Gallery project space until 28th July! The project space is opposite the main gallery building near the MK Theatre. Go and check out their creation!
Well Done Taiba, Liam, Zavier and Alfie!
