On Monday 26th June there will be an Art Exhibition of your Child's work to be held in our school hall. All masterpieces will be framed and catalogued. The price of your child's artwork is £7.00 and helps to develop the children's understanding of the value of art in our lives whilst raising funds for the school. Below are some examples of the children's artwork from Year Six. Further details of the exhibition will be sent out in a letter with your child.

Year One to Year Six had a training session from Artist Eimear Kavanagh. Eimear visited each class and taught the children skills in drawing and shading using a range of mediums. The children's work was amazing as they used real life stimuli to draw their mini-beasts. The progression of skills in drawing was evident to see from Year One to Year Six. Staff are currently in the process of displaying your children's work in our school corridor. What fantastic artists we have at Emmaus.

A big well done to our Year Four pupil who recently won the Winter's Arts competition to design a Christmas card cover for MEP Theresa Griffin.

Key Stage Two Arts Councillors visit to Christopher Grange

 

The  Arts Councillors enjoyed their visit to Christopher Grange Care Home. They participated in many art activities alongside people who were visually impaired. The children particularly enjoyed making a Christmas card using German paper which allowed their design to be raised. They also painted using acrylic paints on canvas and looked at how to write using Braille. The children really enjoyed their visit and were keen to feedback to their peers in class. A big thank you to Christopher Grange for their hospitality.

Music Celebration Week took place the week commencing 11.7.16. During this week the children got to sing/play an instrument to a piece of music that they have been learning in their weekly music lessons. The children's singing and playing of their instruments was excellent. After speaking to the Arts Councillors it was apparent that the children really enjoyed performing to an audience and learnt many new musical skills during this time. Well done to all our musicians.

As part of the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations children from Year 3 drew a portrait of the Queen after looking at various artist's portraits throughout the years. In Year 3 we had a portrait competition. It was very difficult to choose amongst the excellent art work. After a long consultation, here are some photographs of our winning portraits. A big well done to all children who took part in the competition.

The children from Year 2 to Year 6 were recently invited to an assembly by Mr Mannings from Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral Choir. The children really enjoyed learning how to sing an England Football Song. They learnt about what it involved to be a Chorister and some children even got dressed as a Chorister. Children were sent home with a letter giving further details and information of how to apply to be a Chorister.

On Tuesday 8th December, the Arts Council visited Our Lady Queen of Martyrs. The children looked at the site of the new peace garden. Father Kenny has asked the Arts council to design a plaque to commemorate Hillsborough. The children studied the plans with Father Kenny so they could visualise where the plaque will be. Our design is nearly ready to send to Father Kenny and we will update the website when the plaque is installed in the new peace garden..

On Monday 19th October, the children enjoyed a brass instrument assembly held by Stuart from Liverpool's Schools Music. Stuart showed the children a range of brass instruments and some children were even chosen to demonstrate how to play that instrument. The children really enjoyed listening to the different sounds that each instrument makes. If your child has expressed an interest in learning to play a brass instrument they will of taken an information leaflet home. If you would like to enrol your child for brass instrument lessons, registration forms are available from reception. At the moment Liverpool's School Music Service has instruments to loan to children free of charge until Christmas. Afterwards these instruments can be leased for a small fee. I'm sure you'll agree that learning to play an instrument is a great opportunity for your child. Above and below are some photographs of Emmaus children exploring the different brass instruments.
