The primary class have been having fun in their Forest School lessons.
A little felted bird sculpture was sent to Mrs Constantine and was used to inspire a series of lessons using different materials to create a piece of artwork. Year 6 worked with Mrs Frost on a project inspired by AccessArt. We were one of only 150 schools selected across the UK to be involved in #ShareaBird.
Using the wire and felt which the artist Wendy Constance kindly donated, the class were inspired to create their own felt birds which are photographed here. The birds were then placed in a tree in the school grounds and photographed.

'Extremism' Art Work
Students spent a week exploring the theme of Extremism and how we challenge this in modern British society. They focused in particular on the tragic events of 9/11 and 7/7. Here is some of the artwork they produced. They also created news reports and presented a very powerful assembly to the rest of the school. Please click on the image opposite to see our work.

Primary class, Yr6 and Yr7 visit Chelmsford Sports and Athletics Centre for a Sports Experience Day arranged by the President’s Club. We were there with lots of other Special schools from all over the county. Students had the opportunity to experience different sports and activities such as wheelchair basketball, volleyball, trampolining and pedal karts. We also had the opportunity to meet Frank Bruno, Eddie the Eagle, Peter Shilton and Lydia Lucy.
All students had a fantastic time, despite the terrible weather. They all enjoyed the day and were a credit to the school.
