Pupils at Holy Trinity & St John’s Primary School in Margate have had a fantastic week of art participating in the Religious Education competition, ‘Spirited Arts’. The chosen theme was Why do animals matter?
The children in Early Years to Year 4 have been listening to stories from world faiths and responding creatively to them and pupils in Year 5 and 6 have been discussing the theme thinking about the Golden Rule- treat others how you would like to be treated.
Mrs Spencer, RE Lead, said: “The thought and skill which has gone into all the art has been incredible and each pupil should be proud of themselves.”
An art gallery was set up and parents were invited to come and see the work on display. A winner has been selected from each class and their entries will be submitted to the international competition.
Mrs Spencer added: “The children have responded in a variety of ways- paintings, drawings and sculpture and the results across the school have been incredible. Year 3 worked together as a team and created one big piece of art. We are looking forward to submitting our winning pieces.”
