Life in lock down has affected our lives in so many ways and the advent of ‘Expressive Arts Week goes Digital’ was one of them. Under our theme of ‘Africa’, children from Pre-School to Year 6 have been encouraged to enter at least one of the eight categories that were available. We waited with bated breath, watching our Google Classrooms to see who would respond. It is a testament to the commitment of our children and parents to engage in community school events that the entries started to come in, and teachers were able to view and judge the results.
We have greatly enjoyed sharing the daily assemblies with the children and on our social media platforms. It is lovely to still be able to do this in school, and see the faces of children as they react to the results in their socially distanced classrooms.
Well done to everyone who participated this year. It was different, but still very special. Look out for details of the next Expressive Arts Week in summer 2021!
