Dear ‘Key Worker Art Competition’ entrants and parents,
Firstly, I hope that this message finds you all safe and well. Secondly, may I say a huge well done to each and every one of the children that entered the art competition this year. Their originality and creativity never fail to surprise me.
I am pleased to announce that not only has the children’s work been included in a digital online version of the Raring2Go magazine, but it will shortly be displayed around school. Please could I ask children to begin bringing in their entries this week – week commencing 14th September.
Parents: in light of COVID, please could I ask that your child’s art work is given to their class teacher in a sealed plastic bag and is clearly labelled with your Child’s name, Year group and ‘FAO: Mrs Shenton ART competition.’ It will be stored in school for at least 72 hours, before being opened and displayed.
Also, I am proud to tell you that I will be using each competition entry to create a unique set of Thank You cards to send to a range of local Key Workers within our community.
Finally, I am very pleased to announce the following winners:
First place: William Reynolds for his beautiful and touching picture of a doctor holding the UK, which is filled with our precious key-workers, in their hands.
Runners up - EYFS: Thomas and Amelie Stafford for their beautiful multi-media pieces on painted rainbow backgrounds which thank our Key-workers for their hard work.
Runners up – KS1: Darcey Thomas for her beautiful painting of a world with angel wings above a range of our amazing Key-workers.
Runners-up – KS2: Lyra and Coban Hoult for their joint piece which portrays the range of Key-workers that have kept our world going since the pandemic began.
Prizes will be given out in the coming weeks, in a safe manner.
Once again, thank you for each and every entry and for the support that the children received at home in order to take part. During what has been a very dull period, the children’s art work has brought colour and happiness into my days.
Kind regards and I hope that you continue to stay safe and well,
