Artist Of The Month


Congratulations to Isabel Mackenzie. Artist Of The Month!



Saturday October 8th was a beautiful sunny autumnal day and yet many pupils and their families came to school to spend an hour or two making stuff!

It was lovely to see such wonderful things being made, built and created!!

A BIG thank you to the wonderful Year 6 "Helping Hands" for their assisting and general enthusiasm!

A super time had by all : )





So Year 6 and Year 5 students have been artists in their own time as they attend Friday after school Art Club.

The inspiration for the work was a piece of artwork given to the school by a local artist called Di McGhee.

This is what she had to say about her artwork -

" A blackbird came to 2 Garden Villas year after year after year. He would rest on a birdtable my Granda made from Cumbrian slate. My grandparent's garden remains a source of inspiration and I think often of the time they spent tending it. I spent hours drawing the birds and flowers with my Nana.

The flowers in the drawing are special. My Nana planted borders and beds of Livingstone Daisies. At dawn they are tightly closed, as the sun rises they open into glorious colours of sunshine."

SO watch this space for what we created!!!!!

 First thing to do was make lots of observational drawings of blackbirds. Sadly we didnt have a real one in class, so photos of blackbirds had to do!

We used all sorts of drawing materials to work with.




Then some of us were inspired to paint, print, collage or even sculpt!

GREAT NEWS!  St Wilfrids have recently been awarded Artsmark status for the first time!

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme which enables schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Trinity College London and 10 regional Bridge organisations drive participation. We hope you share our pride in being nationally recognised for our arts and cultural provision. 


Look at all the wonderful drama that's happened in Year 5. The story of St George was a complete inspiration for the budding actors!!!

The dance provision this year has included 'Street Dance' with fantastic enthusiasm demonstrated throughout.

Strings and Things made their debut performance in front of all the school. Everyone was so impressed!!

ARTIST of the MONTH is always eagerly anticipated. Always a treat to view such wonderful artwork produced in school.
