YOUNG people from Westacre Middle School in Droitwich showed off their creative talents when they took part in two art projects.
In the first, the children produced their own works of art on the subject of summertime with the best ones being displayed at a special exhibition in the school hall.
Parents and children went along to view the collection which featured pieces done by all year groups.
The chairman of Wychavon District Council Lynne Duffy also attended as a judge and, after much deliberation, chose Kye Poole in year seven to be the winner with his 3D sculpture of a barbecue. In second was Betsy Coton from year five who produced a 3D model of a teddy bears’ picnic and in third was Evie Gill from year six who created a painting depicting the sun.
Then, last Thursday (July 17), youngsters from Westacre took part in Dabble Day where each member of staff hosted a creative activity.
The children were told before the day that there were 20 activities on offer and they had to choose the three they most wanted to take part in.
The youngsters then got to try their hand at five activities on the day, one of which was guaranteed to be one of their chosen activities.
Children from all years – five, six and seven – worked well together in mixed year groups and activities were designed to challenge the pupils to ‘dabble’ in an activity they had never taken part in previously.
Among the pursuits on offer were calligraphy, decoupage, life drawing, golf, singing, dancing and many more.
Jack Stirzaker in year five said afterwards: “It was a super day, I really enjoyed dabbling in activities I had not done before -in particular Stop animation, as I learnt skills I will use in the future.”
