School Gets Arty

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Here at Millfield, we’re really big on the Arts; we have our own Art Councillors and a club running for an hour after school every Thursday.

This Arts Club has been running for a very long time! Mrs Thompson has been working her socks off trying to get a piece of art for us to do (alongside Mrs Soutar.)

Also, four Year 6s (two from YJA) help the Years 3 and 4 to create a masterpiece. We are split into two groups with around 15 in each group. They are all so enthusiastic as evident from these responses:

“Art is so inspiring because it makes me feel brave and strong!”

“Art is so amusing I wish I could do this club every day!”

Another pupil has been very happy in the arts ever since she visited a famous work of art:

“The Bayeux Tapestry is a brilliant piece of artwork that has really inspired me from the moment I saw it close up. It was fantastic!”

Millfield has lots of art events such as…

  • Open Arts Morning (with over 70 adults attending)
  • The Art Exhibition
  • School productions/plays (What a knight from the 11th – 13th July)
  • Craft Club
  • Forces Group (they do crafts)
  • Outdoor art lessons
  • Mindful colouring in RE
  • Visitors (eg Ben Moss)

We also have Music; we do…

  • Ukulele- Yr 3
  • Drumming-Yr 4
  • Brass instruments (Trumpets, Trombones, French Horns)- Yr 5
  • Wind Instruments ( Flutes, Clarinets, Saxophones)-Yr 5
  • Choir
  • Private singing lessons
  • Private music lessons

Once we have learned a few songs with our instruments we have music concerts!

Millfield Art Club has before experienced the stress of the Arts Award! There are 5 stages: Discovery, Explorer, Bronze, Silver and Gold. We have only completed Discovery but Explorer is underway! (Also lately, our Years 3 have all received a professional award for completing it!)

We have contributed to the ‘Lincoln Knights Trail’. Young Journalist, Amira has written a series on it. Click here to discover the facts and for more information visit these websites:
