Thursday 13 July 2023 - Hawks reading cafe

Wednesday 28th June - local artist visit 

As part of Sky Arts week, our school decided we would hold our own art week linked in with the topic of portraits. Lots of plans were made and at the start of the week , the children were introduced to the art of Andy Warhol - in particular the ‘Campbell Cans ‘. They were able to design /draw/colour their own version of them - these will be on display at our art gallery on Friday.

We were lucky to have a visit from a local artist - Martin Gibbons - who spent time with the Hawks class and introduced them to the art work of Roy Lichtenstein and pop art. In the session , the children had to draw their own portrait first - some found this very difficult but they all managed to achieve this.
They then took their portrait plus a piece of bubble wrap cut to the  size of the paper and then proceeded to spray with paint. They then pressed their portrait on top of the wet bubble wrap to produce their pictures. Colour was finally added to finish. 
These pictures will be on display as well in the art gallery on Friday.

As part of our topic on Farming, Hawks were lucky to be able to visit a local farm and see what happens. Mr Porter met us and showed us around the barns explaining how the different pieces of machinery work and telling us all about the different types of crops that they grow on the farm.


A little later, we then went on a trek across some of the fields to see the crops - he explained also that the farm had planted 1200 trees this year and showed us some of the newly planted trees.

It was a hot afternoon so we moved into one of the barns which was cooler but contained a vast quantity of corn which the children felt irresistibly drawn to touch and feel!


Towards the end of our visit , we met Mrs Porter - Mr Porter’s mother who had kindly used ingredients grown and found on the farm to make the children some cake which was lovely and very tasty - a freezing ice lolly followed which the children really enjoyed.
