Will has been hard at work with a very creative art project!

Will has come up with an idea that is sure to bring a sense of community and togetherness, whilst also sharing his own art skills and encouraging others to share theirs, too!

The Roundhay Adder is a snake made up of decorative rocks of which anybody can add to!

It currently stands at over 50 rocks!

Keep up the good work, Will!

A week at Moortown

Posted on Monday 18 May 2020 by Mr Owen

Hi everyone,

How are you all? I hope you’ve had a good weekend and are raring to go for another week of home learning.

We had a good week at school last week. We made about as much sweet music as 8 children under 10 can make with xylophones…

We constructed weird and wonderful creations with bricks…

and tried something new when we made some lovely artwork with coloured sand.

What have you tried that was new?
