Art Competition Entry

2013-12-19-11.11.33

This piece of work was created by Year 5 student Lark for a competition at the Aubrey Art Gallery in Dunmow.  Entitled ‘What do you think your world will look like in 500 years from now?‘, it came 12th in the competition out of many schools.

But it’s freezing!!

The infants and juniors have been working hard on a project on fruit and seeds. And what would a nature topic would be without a visit to Anne’s garden full of trees and beautiful flowers. Oh, and don’t forget the rain!!!

After lunch we set off thinking that we were ready for anything, boy were we wrong!

Once at Anne’s garden we picked pears, apples, plums and damsons. Then the rain came bucketing down and we took shelter underneath the apple tree. Anne taught us how to pick fruit properly (For those who are interested twist not pull). It was still raining cats and dogs.

After a short lecture on flowers we headed back to school but it was raining heavily.

The next day we made apple and damson jam by cutting up the fruit, boiling it up until the jamming point and finally putting it in the jars.
