Year 3 have been looking at repeated patterns inspired by the Victorian artist, William Morris. They created observational drawings of flowers and leaves before embossing their designs into foam and printing them in a repetitive design.
Thank you so much to our Y6 pupils and their families for attending our Advent Pyjama Party Cafe! We read a Christmas story wore our pyjamas, had hot chocolate and made our own Christmas decorations from recycled paper.
Art club used acrylic paint to decorate rocks they found in the school playground. See if you can spot them as we hide them in locations around Queen’s Hill.
If you find one, hide it in a new location for another person to find.
Year 6 had an absolutely fantastic trip to Norwich International Aviation Centre to take part in an activity on Tuesday 19th November. We took part in a number of STEM sessions including: paper plane design, robot coding, team building and designing an ejector seat for an egg! It was fabulous to see so many children shine with their creativity and enthusiasm for science and engineering tasks. Thank you so much to all of the RAF volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to make the day happen for us.
Year 3 have started to explore multiplication this week. They got creative showing that 6 equal groups of 4 total 24.
We’re delighted to announce that we have been awarded an Artsmark Gold Award.
Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England. The Artsmark award provides a clear framework for teachers and education professionals to plan, develop and evaluate their arts and cultural provision.
We were commended for our level of commitment to providing a range of high quality arts and cultural experiences for pupils and our work in raising the profile of the arts across the school.
Today we marked remembrance day with a whole school service led by our year 6 pupils. We were joined by members of the community, ex-servicemen who work in our school and our school governing body.
Year 5 have begun reading Journey to Jo’burg this week and have enjoyed discussing the themes contained in this book during our English lessons. We have also been practising with written methods for multiplication, including the Grid Method.
We forgot to mention before half term, but Year 5 had an amazing time at our Ancient Greek’s experience day too – check out the images to see some of the things we got up to!
Year 4 have been busy in their art lessons this week, creating their own Aztec-inspired artwork using oil pastel and watercolour.
At Queen’s Hill, we care about climate change. Here is our version of the Earthsong, organised and arranged by our school ambassadors thanks to Torquay Girls’ Grammar School. These children are encouraging everyone to sign the following petition: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/272167
