Garcia Project – Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery

The Elephant children and their parents have been involved in a fantastic project working with an artist, Sian, from Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery.  They have been on a trip to the gallery and been inspired to create their own work of art.  This work will form part of an exhibition at the gallery from 22nd-24th July.  We would encourage all of our families to go along and have a look as it is free and there is lots to look at and lots of fun activities for adults and children to get involved in.  Over the summer holidays, the exhibition is full of giant box models!  Elephants’ parents are invited to a special launch on Friday from 1-2pm. 

You can see a film of the children talking about what they loved here
and a film of the whole project here.




Lights. Camera, App-tion! Award!

Well done to the Kangaroo Group (ably supported by Mrs Tracey and Miss Burrows) who have won an award for the film which they created as part of this project.  This is very well deserved and we are very proud of all the hard work they put in!  You can see the full length film above.


Lights. Camera, App-tion!!

The children in the Kangaroos group have been taking part in a special project with other schools in the area (sponsored by Jigsaw24).  It has been very exciting and they have worked with Mrs Tracey and Miss Burrows to produce a film which will be shown as part of the ‘Lights, Camera, App-tion!!’ Film Festival at the New Art Exchange on Gregory Boulevard.  Showings will take place during w/c 20th June with the children involved visiting on Monday afternoon.  They have learned all about making films using an app on the Ipads and you can watch their trailer to get a flavour of what they have been doing.  If you wish to get tickets to the official showing on 20th June, please contact the New Art Exchange to book.  All tickets are free but you must have a ticket to see the show.  The finished film will be available to view on this website the following week.  Enjoy!
