Over the last few weeks, as ever, boys have enjoyed exploring their creativity in art.
In Y6, boys have been busy creating clay Udu drums decorated with traditional Ghanaian Adinkra symbols which they applied using Scrafitto – a form of decoration made by scratching through the surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting colour.
In Y5, boys have been getting both hands-on and feet-on in their lessons, creating Aboriginal designs ready for foot painting. We can’t wait to see the results!
Outside of the classroom, creativity has also flourished thanks to a new Y5 art club: Chinese calligraphy. Zihao of 5RR introduced the new club, explaining how his grandmother had taught him. He then showed the boys how to hold the brush and use ink to write their first names in Chinese.
