Key Workers Art Competition Gallery 2020

Well done to all of our competition entrants, for their thoughtful and creative art work to celebrate and thank our Key Workers!

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,

Mrs Shenton

Art Co-ordinator
