I hope you are all well and enjoying some of this lovely sun!


We will continue with our meet the artists project after half term.


Meanwhile as you can’t see your friends and family or visit nice places, why don’t you let them come to you…

Here are some virtual tours you can do free from the comfort of your own home…


The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum holds work by greats such as Marc, Mondrian, Picasso, and Koons. The Dali Museum in Tampa Bay Florida provides visitors an inside look into not only the artwork of surrealist master  Salvador Dali, but also to the important people and places of his life. The National Gallery of London  houses the national collection of paintings in the Western European tradition from the thirteenth through the nineteenth centuries. All three are worth a visit…

You can also visit the British Museum without even leaving your sofa!


Have a good half term break, remember stay positive and stay safe. Hopefully see you all very soon!

6TH May update…


Hi everyone!


I hope you had a lovely Easter and the Easter bunny was good to you all!


Here’s an updated list of learning activities for you. We will continue to send out work in the post but we want you to learn in different ways. In these rather strange times, learning online is becoming even more important. And you can access the school website through your phone, your PlayStation and your Xbox.


We are starting a new topic called “Meet the Artists”

As most of you know my art skills are limited so I will need your help!

Firstly we are going to learn about Meet Frida Kahlo, L. S. Lowry and Joan Miró, three world-class painters whose techniques and subject-matter will inspire and teach you to create your own stunning artworks.

  1. Have a go at researching these artists…
  2. What do you notice they have in common?
  3. Is there one you prefer and why?
  4. Which is your favourite piece of art work?


     This is one of my favourites by Joan Miro


In the next couple of weeks we will have a go at painting self-portraits, urban landscapes and abstract works under their influence.


Have a go at reading/watching The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. What do you think of the story? Have a go at writing your own chapter… you can listen to the story online…



Carry on with you online learning and use the websites provided. If you go shopping try and budget, how much will you need? What change will you get?

Keep safe and looking forward to seeing you all soon!



Hi Everyone smiley


This is a message from your teacher, Miss Griffin.


We want you to know how proud of you we are! We know it is not easy!


We have spoken to families and they have all said how well you are doing…remember to look after your families and help as much as you can at home. This is an unusual situation for everyone but it is an opportunity to enjoy some valuable family time. Play a game together or show off your cooking skills! If anyone wants to practice, Victoria sponge is my personal favourite! Yum! J


We are missing you and are looking forward to welcoming you back to school, safe and well, as soon as possible.


Take care and stay safe.


Reminder on how to access your home learning:


  • Google
  • Enter your username, password and school code like you would in school. Remember the school code is ardenfields
