y8 outstanding achievements

Certificates will be making their way to the following year 8 pupils amongst others, who have really impressed me with their effort and persistence in creating their portrait final pieces.None of these pupils found it 'easy', but they worked hard and eventually produced some fantastic work.

A huge well done to all pupils, some of whom have even been staying at breaks to finalise everything!

cakes at art club!

Tonight was a treat.....!


At art club last week we were talking about how great it would be if we had a little something to eat while getting creative- obviously the theme of CAKE cropped up (!)
 
So we decided that each week art clubbers will take it in turn to provide scrummy treats for art club. Last night I lay awake wondering what delights there would be to sample!

Sophie W 7S1 did not disappoint! BROWNIES! Amazing effort Soph thanks!

Looking forward to next weeks cupcakes from Milly D 7G2!

..Oh, and if you are looking for photographic evidence of said brownies, they were consumed in the space of 5 minutes! YUM!

p.s. I definitely didn't have 2 !
