Here at St John XXIII Catholic Primary School, we enjoy participating in a range of whole school Art projects throughout the year.
Each project has a different area of focus and once displayed, aims to reflect the progression of skills learnt across each year group, from EYFS to Year 6. These skills are built upon in each year group.
We celebrate our God given talents in displaying our whole school projects around our school.
One School, One Family - Self-Portraits Project
Following the reopening of schools nationwide, we were all so excited to be reunited as a whole school family. To mark the significance of this occasion, all pupils from Nursery to Year 6 completed a self-portrait. Each year group explored a different artist of inspiration to decorate the background around their self-portrait. Display boards across the school were filled with each pupil's self-portrait.
Black History Month
Each year group, from Nursery to Year 6, marked and celebrated Black History Month by completing an Art activity. These activities were inspired by a range of artists and cultures. The wonderfully produced work formed a whole school collaborative display and many of these artists studied have now been embedded into our Art curriculum.
Remembrance Day marks the day World War 1 ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.
A two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.
At St John XXIII, each year group marked the occasion by creating poppies which we have displayed around our school. Some children even brought in pictures of their relatives who had fought during the war.
May we always remember and give thanks to them for their courage.
