MADD – Music , Art, Dance and Drama Whole-School Focus
In October and November all of our classes, Nursery to P7, took extra time, over and above our normal Art provision, to focus on creative arts. We looked and learned about art created by others, and worked hard to come up with our own creation.
This all culminated in a fantasticly MADD day when we all shared our learning with each other.
Here is a taste of some of our work.
(P3c climb up one of the ‘Cells of Life’ hills)
Last week on Thursday the 29th October we went to Jupiter Artland. You can learn about 3D Art or sculptures and my favourite is the ‘Landscape with Rifle and Tree’. ‘The Weeping Girls’ were scary. Later P3C had lunchw and then went everywhere.
I thought ‘The Light Pours Out of Me’ was cool because there was lots of obsidian. Obsidian is a black rock from a game called Minecraft. ‘Love bomb’ had a crazy name.
Matthew and Sean present their expirences at Jupiter Artland in a book (created on the iPad app ‘Book Creator’). (Movie has a sound track!)
Poems by P6
SUCK– a poem (John, Sam L)
Menacing, black hole
Sucking me and my mind in
Wondering what’s in the darkness…….
Gripped by fear and curiosity
Carefully I peer in…………
In the deep darkness – all I can see is…..
Jurney through Jupiter Artland – poem (Angus)
Swirling hills erupt from the ground
Covered in lush, green grass
Sparkling, deep blue water surrounds
the great emerald island.
On it, standing tall and proud,
A tree and a giant’s gun
Look between these great sculptures –
And you will see
A web with a hole in the centre
Look through the mighty circle
And you will see a beautiful sight –
Where will you go next?
The Light Pours Out of Me – a poem (Shay, Ryan D)
I see crystals reflecting kindness and joy
Of every little girl and every little boy
Diamond-like gems sparkling purple and white,
Glistening and glowing in the deep, dark night.
You are like the twinkling star that lights up the sky
Being reflected undergound
Magical – but shy.
When I look at the sky with my telescope
I think of your crystals, like stars,
Pouring out light and hope.
