2B Liverpool Art Inspired by Ian Fennelly, by Miss Mulheirn
Date: 2nd Jul 2019 @ 3:09pm
2B have had an excellent day creating paintings of Liverpool landmarks inspired by local artist Ian Fennelly.
We studied photographs of The Three Graces extremely carefully before choosing our favourite landmark. We started by tracing the shape of the building with out fingers before drawing the shape onto our paper. Then we used black pens and watercolour paints to decorate our buildings. We tried very hard to blend the paints with the right amount of water and to stay in the lines. After lunch, we added detail and windows to our drawings, trying to keep them as realistic as possible. Here are some photos of us creating our work and our finished products!
Well done 2B!

Tae kwon-do black belt, by Cassidy
Date: 13th Jul 2019 @ 7:08pm
We are delighted to report on the achievement of Beatrice Bartram in year 5.
Bea has been training since May 2015 and on 12 April 2019 she took her grading for her 1st Dan Black Belt. bea is a member of Wirral & Chester Tae Kwon-Do which is a member of the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB) recognised in the UK through UK Sport & Sport England and World-Wide though Tae Kwon-Do International. For her training she follows the same syllabus as adult students, and the absolute minimum time it takes from White Belt (Beginners) to 1st Dan Black Belt is 3.5 years. Many students during their training will compete locally, Nationally or Internationally, and will help out in class supporting other students.
Tae Kwon-Do is a traditional Martial Art from Korea and includes Patterns (a set of sequenced moves), Theory, Sparring and focuses on Self Defence.
In preparation for their grading, students will train at least twice a week, often 3-4 times per week, and attend 3 “Pre-Grading Sessions” with one of the Senior Members of the TAGB (All either 8th Dan World Masters or 9th Dan Grand Masters). The grading itself is held in the TAGB Headquarters in Bristol in front of 5, 9th Dan Grand Masters.
On this occasion over 500 students took the Grading for their 1st Dan or higher Black Belts around 400 of those were grading for their 1st Dan (the same as Beatrice) and we are amazingly proud, that the Grand Masters of the TAGB considered Beatrice to be “The Bestin Grading” Student out of all of those grading for 1st Dan, an amazing testament to the High Level to which Beatrice Trains. We have attached Photographs of Beatrice Receiving her award at the recent Welsh National Championship in Cardiff, from Grand Master Oliver.

2B Art Day with Ticky Lowe, by Miss Mulheirn
Date: 20th Jun 2019 @ 1:10pm
On Monday, we made all sorts of wonderful seaside creations with the local artist Ticky Lowe. We made our own felt by rolling small strands of wool together with soapy water and we then practised our plaiting skills. We used our imagination to make unique sea creatures using a range of materials and applied the stitching skills we had practised the previous week. Our messiest table was the tie-dying table... we had so much fun experimenting with different colours and techniques. For our school displays, we wove strips of fabric to make a splashy sea, and attached our lovely sealife to make the sea complete. We hope you enjoy our fantastic artwork!

On Monday morning 2C braved the elements to visit New Brighton beach. Here, with the help of Dave the Coastal Ranger, we collected litter with pickers. We were fascinated to learn that it takes 1000 years to break down a plastic bag! Next, we went on a physical and human features walk around the environment, stopping to sketch the Liverpool skyline. Finally, because we were by the seaside, we all enjoyed a delicious ice lolly. What a fun morning we had!
