Take One Picture… Take One Fashion Show…
London? Paris? New York? No… Langold Dyscarr Community School was the venue for the children to present their latest Winter Fashion Collection at Take One Fashion Show...
For the past half term the whole school has taken part in the Take One Picture project set by The National Gallery. The school chose 4 paintings from a list suggested by The National Gallery and from these paintings all our work across the whole curriculum has been based, from literacy and numeracy to DT and PE.
The Catwalk (Hall) was buzzing with anticipation and excitement. Our compere, Mr Hays, was ready to introduce and celebrate all the exciting and creative learning that has evolved from Take One Picture... Our audience was treated to a veritable artistic feast...
Year 1, Year 1/2 and Year 2 models modelled their beautifully designed hats - - with chic and elegance - any milliner would be proud - perhaps we should send some of our designs to Rachel Trevor-Morgan, the Queen’s milliner!
Year 3 were inspired by their picture to write some lovely poems about a scene viewed from a train - the children read a sample of their work to us - we could almost feel the rhythm of the train!
Our gymnasts elegantly showed us how art had inspired them. Some of their moves were amazing!
The DT and homework club designed and created some stunning T shirts - our models would not have looked out of place on any international catwalk.
After our Take One Fashion Show..., our parents and carers were able to visit all the other exciting exhibits - jewellery, gypsy caravan models, salt dough fruit, writing, weaving and of course beautiful paintings and art work across the school. Finally, a cup of tea or coffee with delicious, homemade cake to reflect on and appreciate the marvellous creative children we have in school! We are VERY PROUD of them!
Of course, all this could not have been possible without the hard work and encouragement from the staff, especially Ms Ahmed who coordinated the project. Thank you, Ms Ahmed!
Lastly, thank you to all the parents and carers who attended and helped us to celebrate the children’s achievements - it made such a difference!
Here are just a few feedback comments from the parents and carers:
“Absolutely brilliant!” “I really enjoyed it - it was brilliant!” “Amazing!” “The confidence of the children was really good!” “Very creative!” “Ten out of ten!”
