As part of the Year of Mercy celebrations the Diocese are holding a Spirited Art Competition.  We decided to enter into 2 of the categories – Art and Dance.

On Friday 23rd September all the children took part in an art day in which they produced their submissions for the competition.  As you can see from the photos they all worked very hard and produced some absolutely beautiful pieces.

We would like to thank Westerhope tile centre, JC Tiling and CTD Newcastle who generously donated tiles and their time to enable our Y4 pupils to produce their successful finished pieces.

Two small groups of children, one from KS1 and another from KS2 both produced dances with the theme of Mercy.

The infants danced to ‘It’s beginning to rain’

The junior children danced to ‘God of Mercy’.

The deadline for entries is 5th October – let’s see how our fantastic children do!
