ART WEEK 2021
We have been very busy this week at Guiseley Primary as every year group took part in our annual Art Week.
This year, we decided that we would not choose a classic artist like Picasso but a current artist instead. We have chosen a wonderful variety of painters, designers and crafters, which enabled the children to learn and practise lots of new skills. By choosing current artists, we also have the opportunity to contact them and show photos of the children's work. Year 2 were very lucky to receive a visit from their chosen artist Fern Whittle, as she lives locally.
Unfortunately, parents and visitors were unable to attend our art exhibition but hopefully they will still be able to admire the children's artwork at our virtual art exhibition below.
The children have produced some wonderful art work. They never cease to amaze and impress us with how talented and creative they are!

Cross Country at Wharfemeadows Park
There was a real buzz at Wharfemeadows, Otley this week when over 30 children took part in a Key Stage 2 Cross Country competition. There were some incredible individual performances with 7 children finishing in the top 10 positions...... AMAZING!!
The Y5 girls team put in an outstanding team performance as well with all 4 girls finishing in the top 10!
Some of our team were competing for the first time in a cross country event and we are extremely proud of you all - WELL DONE!
Big thanks to the staff who volunteered to support the team and the parents who made it down to cheer from the sidelines.
WATCH this space to find out if any of our teams or competitors made it through to the next round....
Eco Warriors Environmental Afternoon at Nunroyd Park
Last week, our team of Eco Warriors from Year 2 to Year 6 took park in an environmental afternoon at Nunroyd Park. The children were split into two groups - one group litter picked in the park and the other group helped the 'Friend's of Nunroyd' plant some Irises around the new pond they have built!
They had a great time and it was lovely to see our children giving back to the local community. Well done our Eco Warriors!
