This morning, the children of Elm and Larch were involved in a hands-on art session with Connect Colour, to create a unique picture based on the Holme Grange themes of ‘Imagination & Creativity’ and ‘Courage&Self Belief’.

Sally assisted the Year 4s in their painting and decorating:  finger-painting, squeezing from tubes, sprinkling of glitter, sticking of of crystals, beads and stones, as well as making patterns with sticks. It was a very messy and fun affair.

The whole school is taking part in this creative venture surrounding our Learning Habits. The paintings will be displayed in our building extension for our new Year 9, 10 and 11 classrooms. The Connect2Colour approach is based on honest communication – it shouts ‘I CAN.  The unique approach opens communication channels and lays down the foundation for transformation.

And transformation is what Holme Grange School is all about – transformation of the child and transformation of learning.

    WOW! This is a great picture. I think we all did an excellent job. The picture is very colourful and it shows our imagination and creativity. I hope we do this again sometime.

    I liked making the learning habits. The best bit was when we swerved the sticks around and made the paint stick.

  • Hollie

    I think the best one was the orange one. It was fun making them, I want to do it again.

  • William

    I think it’s a really good idea that we did those paintings, THANKS SCHOOL!

  • George W

    Wow! What a lovely painting. Who knew that not being allowed to use paintbrushes would look so creative!

  • Sid

    OH MY! I liked all of the paintings but my favourite one was the purple one.

  • year4

    I think wait I know the purple one was best!

  • Theo

    When we started making it we were smudging paint around and I thought it would be a rubbish painting and then it was a great painting!

  • Freddie

    I really enjoyed doing our courage and self belief painting because we got to do it ourselves and we got to put lots of colours on it. But my favourite bit was getting my hands in the paint and moving it around.
