A SCHOOL has vowed to make each day a ‘positive one’ despite the nationwide lockdown.

Pupils from Grange C of E School are making the most out of learning both at home and in school by exhibiting their artistic talent.

Classes have created vibrant artwork exploring magnets, forces, stone age, cave art and the digestive system through drawing and painting.

Some pupils even made their own natural paints and took to real wall painting whereas others found tight spaces to simulate difficulty of painting in caves.

The Year Five class looked at reversible and irreversible changes whilst the Year Four class explored the digestive system through artwork.

Junior classes have also been learning about Hindu Shrines as part of their work on Sacred Places.

A spokesman for Grange C of E school said: “There creative efforts at home and school are superb.”

Phillipa Summers, headteacher of Grange C of E School, said the school is ‘impressed’ by the quality of work both in school and at home.

She said: “The children of Grange C of E School have quickly adapted to remote learning, sharing with us their fantastic work via ‘Google Classroom’.

“All our staff are doing a great job in school teaching the critical key worker and vulnerable children whilst uploading lessons for those children learning at home with their parents.

“We are so impressed by the quality of the work both in school and at home, especially as parents are often juggling work commitments whilst supporting their child with lessons every day.”

Mrs Summers said ‘each day is a positive one’ at the school despite the nationwide lockdown impacting everyday life.

She said: “We have shared work with parents and children through our Twitter feed and in live meets when children speak to the teacher and see their class online, as it is so important to let them know we appreciate all they are doing.

“Each day is a positive one here at Grange School despite the lockdown.”
