Christ the King are working towards Artsmark Award. Two pupils have given us an insight into what this means for our school.
On Friday 22nd April, some children from each class were chosen to be part of the Arts Council because of our ability in art. We are working towards the Artsmark Award which will mean us getting a badge with four sections: art, acting, music and dancing. Rianna Macmahon-Sethi, Year 4
On Friday last week, myself and some other children were asked to be part of the Arts Council because teachers have noticed we are talented artists. The Arts Council is made up of a group of children who may have shown ability in the areas of music, dancing, acting and art. We are going to work hard to help our school achieve the Artsmark Award. Sally Worden, Year 5

As part of our Retro Week, we were very lucky to work with local artist Ursula Hurst of Art Daze. The children in our Arts Council, led by Mrs Entwistle, had come up with ideas and images which they felt best represented Christ the King School. Ursula took these ideas and worked with groups of children from KS2 to make two beautiful silk panels. The children were taught silk painting techniques and used these skills to produce a stunning display for our reception area. Ursula also worked with groups of children from KS1. They were taught tie dye techniques and their work was used to construct a very impressive tepee. This will be used as part of a Key Stage 1 reading area.
