Arts Ambassadors

 On November 2nd 2022, Mrs Stevenson and  Mrs Nisbet took 6 children from Key Stage 2 to Holly Lodge High School in Smethwick.  The children took part in Arts Ambassador training, of which they passed with flying colours!  The children worked with other schools, including children from Holly Lodge, to discuss the importance of the Arts.  They then presented a persuasive argument to their audience explaining and asking for funding.  They did this brilliantly, even though it was a little scary standing up in front of all the children and adults!  The children will help to make sure that plenty of Arts activities take place at our school in the next year and this will hopefully help us achieve the Artsmark Award.

 

 

Artist in Residence

 

Madeline Morris, an artist in residence, worked with our wonderful Year 5 pupils to design, edit and make a banner to celebrate the Haden Hill Centenary Celebration.  The work was so wonderful that they did not make just one banner; they made THREE!  Well done to all the Year 5 pupils.  The banners look great!
