It’s national ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ on Friday 13th December and we are asking if your child can come to school in their best Christmas themed jumper / t-shirt / outfit and donate £1 to ‘Save the Children’ to help kids around the world.
You don’t have to go out and buy a brand new jumper to join in with the day. You could just grab an old jumper and cover it with stickers, tinsel or whatever sparkly stuff that you have at home! Get creative! Have fun!
Here are a few ideas:
Just remember… Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is about more that just wearing silly sweaters – it’s about making the world a better place for children.
Y10 have been working extremely hard to get their tonal self portraits finished for their ‘Christmas Style Lecture’ that is due to take place next week.
Pupils have looked at portraits through history in order to help them with their own self portraits.
Pupils have been asked to plan a background for their portraits to show aspects of their character and what makes them who they are. They have all been asked to create a rough plan in their sketchbook. Here are some examples:
Pupils now need to complete their background and mount their tonal self portraits onto them.
Here is one in progress:
Im looking forward to seeing this piece of work completed and displayed next week! Well done X23! Keep up the fantastic work!
I wanted to give a student in my Crew a special mention for her hard work since starting XP in September. She will probably hate that I have made a fuss and posted this – but I wanted to share this beautiful book review that she passed on to me.
Nida from crew EJN in X26 produced this review based on the book ‘Ratburger’ by David Walliams in her own time. She wanted other pupils to be able to read it and know a little more information about the book before reading it. Nida really loves reading and gets through a few books per week.
She thought that producing book reviews like this might help other pupils who don’t have the same love of reading as she does.
I think you will agree with me that this is a really beautiful piece of work and I am looking forward to reading another book review!
Well done Nida! Keep up the good work!
p.s. please don’t be angry with me for posting this!
