February Arts and Wellbeing Festival 2024

Last week saw the beginning of our first ever February Arts and Wellbeing Festival. Who would have thought that we would be totally engrossed in 'doodling' and 'noodling'? This was introduced to the children as part of MMM time (Music, Mark-making and Mindfulness). Staff from the Creative team inspired everyone by modelling the art of doodling and noodling in response to carefully selected tracks of music. I can't think of a better way to combine your art and music skills and knowledge.

On a wet Monday morning we were treated to the world and the art of story-telling by Frederick the fisherman from Filey - great fun and what a way to inspire creativity. A huge thank you to all staff who participated and made it such a memorable occasion.
When I visited our Reception classes later in the week they were really eager to talk to me about what happened next to Fred and couldn't wait to draw and write about him.

Other creative highlights during the week were Year 5 and 6 workshops with Northern School of Dance, Bollywood dancing with Salma for Year 3 and 4 and Orchestra of Objects workshops for a range of year groups.

I can't wait to see what next week brings ????
