Week commencing 7th January 2019 - Poetry Week

It is a statutory requirement in the the National Curriculum that children learn to recite poems from heart. This week has been Poetry Week at

Deepcar St John's. Each class chose a poem:

Y3 SB - The Trouble with my Brother
Y4 AD - The Tyger
Y4 JS - Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth-Toast
Y5 HB - The Highwayman
Y6 MH - Night Mail
Y6 DB - I’m a Shrimp
Y6 TR - Pied Piper of Hamelin 

On the 11th January, an expectant audience of children and staff were thrilled to hear each class recite their chosen poems. As they each took to the stage it became increasingly difficult to separate such strong performances. Each class were a credit to the school and joy to watch and listen to. We are really proud of all our children, who have worked so hard this week.


The Winners;

Lower School – Mrs Bell’s and Mrs Thompson’s class

Upper School – Mrs Riley’s and Mrs Stewart’s class

The judges said "The standard was truly exemplary with performance levels making it very difficult to choose an overall winner” but at the end of a fantastic morning Mrs Bell’s and Mrs Thompson’s class were announced the overall winners.

Year 3 Whole School Winners

Art Week

Picasso did not feel that art should copy nature. He felt no obligation to remain tied to the more traditional artistic techniques and wanted to emphasize the difference between a painting and reality. Cubism involves different ways of seeing, or perceiving, the world around us. Year 3 are taking inspiration from Picasso and today have been practising sketching techniques before creating their own cubism piece of work.


Year 4 have been mastering their sketching techniques and looking at various pieces of Picasso's work for inspiration. Later this week, they will be using Modrock, which is a plaster bandage that is used for modelling, casting and crafting, to create sculptures.


For 'Art Week', year 5 have been taking their inspiration from one of the great artist, Pablo Picasso. They are going to be creating their own piece of art work using photographs, which they have started to take this afternoon.
