Droitwich youngsters go green during arts week

Droitwich Editorial 7th Dec, 2023   0

YOUNGSTERS at a Droitwich first school shone a spotlight on saving the world during an arts week.

Chawson First School focussed their annual arts week on the environment, with the children learning more about deforestation, plastic pollution, littering, recycling and impact on the polar regions.

Youngsters took part in drama, music and dance workshops to help with their learning and were visited by the Tribe Theatre, artist Oliver Rose, Severn Arts and Entw9 dance.

One of the workshops included making a collaborative piece of art from fabrics the children had brought in which would have otherwise gone to landfill.

They also created sculptures, with Year 4 constructing an octopus made from recycling from home, Year 3 creating a tree representing deforestation, Year 2 a Polar Bear and Year 1 a turtle from recycled bottles and a jellyfish.

Olivia Howse, Art Subject Lead at Chawson First School said: “Arts week was a great success and was thoroughly enjoyed by both staff and children.




“It was a great opportunity to foster a passion for the arts and saving the environment.

“The children walked away from the week with new skills, interests and knowledge about how humans impact on the planet.”
