Chalk Drawing Challenge
/ Categories: In the press
Whilst the school has been closed, due to Covid-19, St Ives’ Head Teacher, Mrs Goldsworthy, has been setting the children weekly challenges that are purely for fun and to allow time away from screens and desks. This week’s challenge was to use chalk to create a picture. Pupils have been so creative with the ways they have interpreted this simple brief and Mrs Goldsworthy has been thrilled with the results:
“Being creative has always formed an integral part of a St Ives education and it is wonderful to see how the childrens’ creativity is thriving during this period of home learning. They have clearly had a lot of fun with this challenge and, by sharing them within our community, we are building on our spirit of keeping ‘Together Whilst Apart.’
‘Together Whilst Apart’ is the school’s temporary motto, being used whilst the school is closed, and is forming a key role in all their planning – whether it is academic work, extra-curricular activities or pastoral care. The school knows it is fundamental to keep the spirit of St Ives at the forefront of their children’s minds so they continue to feel involved and connected, ready for when they can be together again physically.
