Trips and Visits 2019-2020

Old Trafford: Manchester United V FC Astana

Fourteen lucky pupils from Year Six travelled to Old Trafford to watch Manchester United play against FC Astana.  It was the first game in the 2019/2020 UEFA Europe League.  Pupils were amazed at the size of the Old Trafford grounds, which has a capacity of 75,000, and has been United’s home ground since 1910.  Pupils watched the game with excitement and it wasn’t until the 73rd minute when Bradford born youngster Mason Greenwood scored for Manchester.  It was a great goal which sent the crowd up in cheers.  The whole experience was amazing for our pupils, which for most was the first time in a major football ground.

Cartwright Hall: Year 6: Portraits

Year 6 pupils spent the day at Cartwright Hall learning about drawing portraits.  The workshop covered how to study the face and understand its construction and how to avoid common mistakes in drawing.  Pupils looked at some art pieces in the museum then tried their hand at drawing them.  This progressed to drawing other art work and then drawing each other.  Our pupils produced some excellent artwork and portraits.

Tour De Bradford: Year 3

Pupils have been learning about Bradford and its geographical features.  They have been looking into the differences in urban and rural areas of Bradford.  To understand this further they have been on a Tour De Bradford.  The tour covered visiting many areas of the Bradford district to see and experience first-hand the geographical features and sights of each location.  Pupils visited and travelled through; Oxenhope, Howarth, Harden (St Ives), Baildon (Trig point), Thackley, Greengates, Eccleshill, Bd3, Bd1 and back to Bd7.  The visit gave our pupils a better understanding of the district they live in.

Cartwright Hall: Year 4:  Impressionism

Pupils from Year 4 visited Cartwright Hall to learn about impressionist style art.  Impressionism developed in the nineteenth century and is based on the practice of painting out of doors and spontaneously ‘on the spot’ rather than in a studio from sketches.  Main impressionist subjects were landscapes and scenes of everyday life.  They also talked about ‘impasto in art’.  Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible.  During the visit our pupils were taken through the galleries and given an opportunity to draw some of the displayed art work.  They looked at three paintings; the ‘Garden of Enchantment’ from ‘Parsifal’ 1914, the ‘Harvester’s Supper’ 1903, and the ‘Boy and the Man’ 1908.  They also went outside into the gardens and drew their own impressionist style art of the surroundings.  This was then coloured by using wax pastels and blended with water.  This resulted in some marvellous art work by our pupils.
