Y1 Trip to The Lowry

Y1 had a great time today at The Lowry. The children worked as artists, with an artist, to produce work in the style of Lowry. The concentration the children showed during their creations was amazing to see!

The children also had the opportunity to visit the Lowry gallery and see his original paintings. We spent time studying Lowry’s paintings and we made our own sketches based on his work.

Artsmark Award For Grosvenor Road

We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Artsmark Silver Award.

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s award for schools and education settings who champion cultural education, celebrating settings that embrace the arts across the curriculum.

Our Silver Award shows how the school is skilled in unlocking the potential of our children, developing their character and talent, and increasing their knowledge and understanding across the wider curriculum.

The award has been achieved over a three year period, led by Mrs Heys and Mrs Peacock, together with our Art Subject Leader Mrs Moran and our Music Subject Leader Mrs Newall. We look forward to continuing to promote the arts and a wider curriculum at Grosvenor Road, giving our children a range of opportunities and experiences in school and out in the wider community.

The Lion King Y6-1

Today, as part of our world of work week, UKS2 were visited by West End Schools who talked to them all about the theatre industry and also worked with them to produce a short musical version of The Lion King, which they performed to each other. They worked incredibly hard and threw themselves into it – as you can see from the photos below. Well done everyone who took part.

Year One Lowry Workshop

On Tuesday 12th February Michelle Leigh an artist who works closely with the Lowry art gallery visited year one and spent the day leading art workshops. The children listened carefully as Michelle told them all about Lowry and his famous pieces of artwork. The children improved their pencil drawing techniques through making a looking log each and explored simple perspective. Finally the children created a pen and wash art piece incorporating elements of Lowry’s paintings which are going to be entered into a competition at the art gallery. This was a fabulous way to end the history topic on L.S.Lowry and develop the children’s love of art.
