On Monday 25th June Key Stage Two had a special visitor from Broadway Museum and Art gallery to award some prizes for art and poetry that had been entered into their Hiroshige Exhibition competition.
The museum ran the competition based upon the Japanese artist and his paintings of the volcano, Mount Fuji. Entries for art work were made from Year Three and poetry from Year Six.
Mrs Hilary Rowlands (former head teacher of Holy Redeemer school and volunteer at the museum) came along to award prizes to four of our pupils – 2nd prize in art (Year Three) and 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for writing Haikus (all Year Six).
Take a look at the children receiving their prizes here:
Big congratulations to all of those children on their fantastic achievement.
Pictures from the exhibition can been see on the Museum’s website along with the following feedback: “The judges were very impressed by the high standard of all the entries to the Art and Poetry Competition inspired by the Hiroshige Exhibition at Broadway Museum and Art Gallery. The progression of skills could be seen across the age groups. The judges looked for originality, an understanding of the brief and composition and colour.
The Haiku’s showed great skill in the use of descriptive language and an attention to detail paying attention to the amount of syllables required.”
