Spring 1 2021 - Lockdown Recycling Challenges
Over the last 5 weeks the children at Haslam Park have been set weekly challenges to create pictures and sculptures using household items eg tubes, egg boxes, plastic bottles, food and tinfoil. Each week they have emailed in their creations and these have been displayed on our Art Curriculum page and on our Zoom School Assemblies.
I have been so impressed at the unique and creative ideas that you have come up with. You should all be so proud at what you have achieved. Take a look below at some of the amazing and inspiring Art creations you came up with.

Remembrance Day Art and Poetry work
Diwali Day 2020
As part of our Artsmark journey we are committed to equality of opportunity to arts and cultural experiences. That is why we are having 'Festival Days' in our school. In November we had a 'Diwali Day' where all the school immersed themselves in activities and celebrations related to this Hindu festival. The children took part in some Bollywood dancing and created Rangoli patterns, Mendhi hand patterns and Diwa Lamps. Some of the children were isolating at home but they still took part by uploading their pictures from home. It was such a fun day!
17th and 19th November 2020
Some of the children have been extremely fortunate to have a Zoom call with a member of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. We spoke to a member of the orchestra- Lily Whitehurst- who plays the violin. We got to listen to her play and then she answered some of our questions.
