Creative Arts and Book Week 2015

World Book Day

On Thursday 4th March, the whole school celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite story book character, even the teachers and support staff got involved, it was great fun.


Horrible Histories

On Tuesday 3rd March, we kicked off our Creative Arts and Book week with a visit from the amazingly talented Martin Brown, illustrator of the Horrible Histories series. The children were treated to a demonstration on how he draws his characters and each class had the chance to meet Martin and ask him questions about his work.  

One Year 4 child said, "Wow, it is amazing how he brings history to life! It was brilliant, I want to draw like that one day!"

Another Year 2 child said, "He was really good, I loved his drawings!"

Creative Arts and Book Week 2015

Incredible Illustrators

To help us celebrate World Book day and Creative Arts week, each class chose an illustrator to base their art projects around. Reception heard all about Millie's magical hat and created their own hats. Year 1 were visited by a giant 3D gruffalo. Year 2's classroom's were alive with the sounds of cockatoos from Quentin Blakes' book. Year 3 were set the task of creating a giant Horrible Histories' Groovy Greek and Year 4 have created their own diaries like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. KS1 and KS2 were also visited by an illustration student from Arts University Bournemouth who  shared her drawings with the children and explained how to become an illustrator!

It was a brilliant week in Wimborne First!

Xbox and Spinning Tops

Year 1 had a wonderful experience this term talking to their Grandparents about the toys they used to play with in their childhood. The children discovered lots about old and new toys and had a lovely afternoon sharing their learning with their Grandparents.
