Art trip to Mayfield School
We went to the school in a minibus to Mayfield School where we were greeted by the ceramics teacher and a group of children from Skipper's Hill. We looked at the sixth formers’ art on display in the reception area and then we headed for some lunch.
After lunch we went down to the art department and split into two groups; one group went upstairs to create fish collages whilst my group went downstairs to the ceramics room.
The teacher guided us through the steps of how to make a life like clay dog. We wrapped fresh clay round bubble wrap and then added a head, legs and tail. Then we started to sculpt out the shape of the muzzle, body and paws of the dog. We spent a long time adding detail like the eyes, ears, brow and spine before putting it to one side for firing.
After a chat with the teachers and a look at the other pupils’ art we went home.

On Wednesday 11 March the Reception children went on a visit to the nature trail at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt. There was great excitement, even before we boarded the minibus in our salopettes, coats and wellies.

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
