Fun in Art!

Creativity is one of our core values here at St. Stephen's Junior School, and how better to execise that creativity than by encouraging our children to use their young imaginations in creating models in Art lessons. Below are a few images captured during an inspiring Art lesson with Mr Martin and Mrs Erasmi. The theme for this art lesson was 'Man on a Wire', in honour of Philippe Petit, the talented French aerialist who walked across a wire a quarter of a mile high suspended between the Twin Towers of New York in 1974.

Team Building in Year 3 and 4

What a wonderful way to begin a new school year by participating in fun team building exercises with the Challenger Troop. Year 3 and 4 children had their own opportunities to get to know their fellow classmates a little better by enjoying a few team building games and obstacle courses on the St. Stephen's Junior sports field. The enthusiasm shared amongst all the children made for a very successful day. Well done everyone!

Philippe Petit - A man on a wire!

This past week children in all year groups were inspired by the story of Philippe Petit, an extremely talented French aerialist who successfully walked across a wire a quarter of a mile up between the Twin Towers of New York in 1974. Children were asked to exercise their creativity by participating in a range of different activities in celebration of this remarkable individual and his incredible achievement.

Acitivities included green screen filming across a balance bar while using iPads to film and create the effects, and creating models in Art. Below are a few of the photographs taken during the week.

Year 5 learn about Thomas Becket

20160919 103603Year 5 children have been learning about Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, whose death in December 1170 remains one of the most famous stories associated with Medieval England. The learning was made so much more interesting by a visit to Canterbury Cathedral and playing along in a few re-enactments, while dressed in some amazing costumes associated with that period.

To share in the experience, why not visit this LINK to have a look at a few of the photographs taken of the children adorned in their colourful outfits.
