Years 5 and 6 Art Project

Years 5 and 6 have been working on their entries to the Mary Fedden OBE Commemorative Art Competition hosted by Badminton School. This year’s theme is ‘Roots or Routes’, with pupils being asked to explore these words through art. Our pupils, under the superb guidance and direction of Head of Art, Mrs Palmer, are exploring both – depicting visually where they come from (their roots) and the directions their lives have taken them since (their routes). As part of this project, they have also looked at the art of migrants and refugees, thinking about how different routes are taken for different reasons. They particularly enjoyed learning about The Walk– a travelling festival of art and hope in support of refugees, with artistic direction from Amir Nizar Zuabi (check out ‘Little Amal’ – a 3.5 metre tall puppet of a young refugee girl, created by the Handspring Puppet Company). A brilliant example of art bringing communities together, and we look forward to seeing the final ‘Roots or Routes’ exhibition later this month.
