We have been celebrating Sky Arts Access All Arts Week!
Nursery enjoyed joining Patrick from English National Opera
for a Spellcasting warm-up.
Key Stage One pupils drew pictures of their favourite place to be
and then composed a vocal or body percussion sound to represent it.
The rest of the class had to guess where there favourite place was
by listening to the sounds they performed.
