AMAZING Artwork Unveiled!

Notice anything different in reception?

Our students have produced a collaborative piece of work based on their thoughts and feelings around activities done during the workshops at the end of the Summer term.



Students in ks3 and 4 created decorative masks and used comments from everyone in school collected at the time of the workshops. They carefully chose words like 'awesome' and 'amazing' and pressed letters into the masks. Other students chose pictures of students doing activities to form the basis of their design. Children in foundation stage pressed cutters and stamps into clay and produced very creative pieces.

All the designs were fired and glazed from July to September in our newly refurbished kiln and mounted on a striking background bearing the Newman school motto 'Better Never Stops'.

Special thanks to Mr John Ryan, site manager, for all his hard work putting the work up.

KS3.1 Autumn Equinox

Mrs Turnbull's form created these stunning pieces of art work to celebrate the start of Autumn. We layered on different textures using unusual objects like a toothbrush and a potato peeler. We used the shape of an Autumn leaf to make a stencil. We used black paint and a sponge to create the finished effect.

Well done!
