Creative Learning 

Bessie’s Wings – an art exhibition inspired by the American aviatrix Bessie Coleman. In the Millennium Library until 1st December – go and have a look if you are near the Forum. See twitter comment: We’ve seen the artwork produced by talented pupils from @QPrimary and we thoroughly recommend popping along to see it for yourself!
The children had an afternoon workshop in the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library where the children had some fun finding out about inspirational Norfolk women and Norfolk’s aviation heritage through images taken from Picture Norfolk
and the 2nd Air Division Digital Archive
and then went time travelling (using green screen technology) to join the characters in the photos.
The exhibition was officially launched by Jan Holden, Head of Norfolk Library and Information Service, and will be available to view in the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library until the 3rd December.
We celebrated our Creativity Focus today in a special assembly, where growth mindset certificates were given out to children and then four lucky winners received goody bags. Prizes were also given to children who had shown creativity in their home learning. The certificates and prizes were presented by Mik the local artist, who worked with the children on our house display. Well done to everyone who showed amazing creativity and thank you for your support during this focus.
We love our new house display, which is in the school hall.  Have a look when you next walk past.  I think you will agree, with the support from Mik a local artist, the children have done an amazing job.
We are delighted to announce that the Bessie’s Wings Art Exhibition is currently being displayed in the City Hall in London. STOP PRESS … we will be exhibiting the work of Queen’s Hill Primary School students at the Millennium Library in the Forum with a special opening on Friday 3rd November at 4.00pm more details to follow.
Harvest Assembly
On Friday 29th September, Years 1-6 gathered in the hall to share their harvest festival themed songs, poems, art work and research. The vibe in the hall was heart-warming and all children enjoyed singing along and applauding classes hard work. The room was filled with lots of creativity! Year 6 shared a poem, Year 5 sang ‘Let it Grow’ a re-make of Frozen’s ‘Let it Go’, Year 4 beautifully sang a song that they had been learning, Year 3 rapped a harvest festival rap (written by the very talented Mr King), Year 2 created art work inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo (an artist who covers faces in fruit and vegetables) and Year 1 shared a song with accompanying actions. Well Done to all children for their involvement and hard work!

Today we had our Creative Learning Curriculum Day! The children had lots of fun exploring a variety of different activities including, dancing, making musical instruments, story telling, graffiti, drama and creating fairy houses.

The children will be bringing home a page of exciting Creative Learning activities for you to help them complete. When your child has completed an activity please share with their class teacher. We would love to see what you have been doing!

You can then take a photo and post entries into the box outside the main hall to be entered into a competition. Remember to add your name and year group!

Lets get creative!
