ArtsMark- Community Visitor Portrait Morning

What a fabulous day it was for both the children and staff to meet our local members of the community! I was so impressed with the way children behaved throughout the day, communicated with our visitors and created amazing portraits! It is great to see the progression if drawing skills from mark making in EYFS, right up to shading in Y6! The children even got a visit from Ashley the bear, at break time, who got involved with dancing and basketball! The community police officers also enjoyed a dance on our stafe too! :) Well done to everyone at Arkwright 😄!

N/R- Chris from Bolsover Library Paula Thompson from The Arkwright Centre 

Y1/2- Steve Wells (our School Governor and retired fireman), Yvonne from Calow Scouts and Suzanne from Morrisons
