Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 21st May 2018

On Monday all of KS2 became artists for the day!  After learning about the artist Vincent Van Gogh and looking at his piece of artwork ‘Sunflowers’, the children got their sketch books and sketching pencils out. The morning was spent practising different skills and producing artwork Van Gogh style.  They all worked really well and produced some brilliant masterpieces which you will be able to see hanging in the hall very soon!

Mrs Sale and three Pupil Parliament pupils visited Bengeworth Academy on Tuesday morning to take part in a Learning Walk.

On Wednesday a group of children from Year 5 also visited Bengeworth Academy for a morning of poetry.  The children listened to a piece of music and wrote what they could hear.  Based on that piece of music, they created their own poems working with other children from local schools.

Ethan said: “I really enjoyed working with different people and I was pleased with the poem I wrote about a warrior.”

On Thursday we welcomed Learning Ministers from St Richard's First School to Harvington to take part in a Learning Walk. The children enjoyed meeting with our Pupil Parliament Ministers and even stayed for lunch!

Year Two visited Worcester Cathedral on Thursday. The children had a tour of the Cathedral and had to find Christian symbols and then learnt what they meant. The children also took part in a prayer stone workshop and made some terrifying gargoyles.

'I learnt lots about Christian Symbols and really enjoyed making a gargoyle with horns,' said Lana.

Mrs Phillips and Mrs Scott escorted eight children to Evesham Fire Station today.

We were invited to visit as winners of a competition held by Worcestershire County Council entitled ‘What is important to me’.

Unfortunately both fire crews were called out on emergencies but the children still enjoyed having a tour of the station.
