Hello and welcome to the Arts Council!
We are a group of children from key stage two who have responsibility for looking after and ensuring improvements to Art, Music, Dance, Drama and Visual Art in school. We meet each week in the art room and we talk about what we do in school already that works well and how we can improve these areas. We also use the Arts Council suggestion boxes to listen to the voices of the pupils in key stage one and key stage two.
So far, we have talked to the children in key stage one and key stage two assemblies. We have sent a letter home explaining to parents what our role is in school. We have made the Arts Council suggestion boxes and put them in prominent areas ( the key stage one box is in the year 2 shared area and the key stage two box is in the reception waiting area by the school office).
Recently, we launched the Leeds In Bloom Design A Flowerbed competition. The deadline for entries is Monday 25th of March. So get designing and bring your entry in to school and give it to Miss Webster in the art room. Let's see if we can win some prizes!
If you have any brilliant ideas or suggestions for the Arts Council then you can put your suggestions in the Arts Council suggestion boxes or alternatively you can pop in and see Miss Webster in the Art room before and after school. We are always excited to hear what suggestions you might have.
We are currently planning the End of Year Art Show 2019 which will take place at the end of July. Every child from nursery to year 6 will have a piece of art work on display. This show will be the first of its kind at Clapgate and we are very excited to be organising it. We have some extremely talented children and the work that they have produced this year is amazing! We will be sending invitations out for this event and there will be posters around school to remind you nearer the time.
