Year 8 Scholars Shadow A Teacher

Year 8 Scholar Darci Shadows Mrs Harrison May 17 1

Our Year 8 Academic Scholars spent this morning shadowing a teacher in a subject (or subjects) of their choosing. They chose subjects ranging from Science to French to Art. Canford scholar Darci, for example, worked with Mrs Harrison in the Junior Art Room and did a fantastic job teaching the Year 3s how to draw a cartoon centurion.

Bourton Arts Festival – 5th-7th May 2017

General 18th May 14 035

We are excited to announce that this May will mark the first ever Bourton Arts Festival.  The festival is a celebration of Music, Art, Drama and Dance, as well as many other creative activities from all of our local community.

Over the course of the weekend there will be displays, events and concerts – all of which will be held either at the School, Bourton Village Hall or Bourton Church.   Pinewood children will obviously be contributing to the festival, but we are hoping that it will attract participation from our friends and neighbours as well.

Although plans are still in development, we can confirm Saturday night’s musical entertainment will be the Rock Bands, with a performance of Fauré’s Requiem, and the Mozart Flute and Harp concerto will close the weekend on Sunday evening in the Church.

We are also delighted that Sir James Galway has agreed to be our Patron this year and we look forward to welcoming him to the concert.

The dates of our festival coincide with the long established Oxfordshire open studios event “Artweeks” and the school is sponsoring an exhibition in the Village Hall.  Professional artists from the Vale of the White Horse area have been invited to showcase paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, jewellery, and much more.

We want the weekend to be action packed and well supported, so would welcome any suggestions, participation or sponsorship.  More details will follow as we get closer to the event.

Sun & Moon Art Competition

art 15

The response to the art competition on the theme of SUN AND MOON was amazing and some fantastic work has been produced.

For the first time there has been insufficient room to display all the entries on the board at the top of the main stairs, and the display does look very impressive.

The work has been very varied and often showed considerable effort and thoughtfulness of approach. I do encourage everyone to take a moment if they can to come and see the display.

Rather than pick winners I have awarded a prize to every child who entered the competition, but did ask some individual pupils and  members of staff, selected at random, to pick some favourite pieces of work.

Pupils who were mentioned included:

Mahony Knight, Liggy Lawson, Tom Pritchard, Dorothy Johnstone, Hector French, Marina Prichard-Jones, Amelia Edwards and Alexandra Edwards.

The pupil whose work was most often admired was Cosmo del Mar for his Eclipse Over Tower Bridge and by this reckoning that makes him our winner. A splendid result for Cosmo, who always enters the art competition and has not won until now.
