Updated 1:38pm Monday 9th June 2014 in News
GOODRICH C E Primary is a forward-looking school which is striving to give pupils the best education in a dynamic and progressive learning environment.
The school fosters positive attitudes to learning and encourages pupils to develop as individuals and express their views.
Head teacher Karen Miles leads a team of dedicated and conscientious staff who are keen to do their best for the pupils.
Pupils are friendly and polite and have a positive approach and mindset to their learning.
This summer term children are working on a project inspired by the National Gallery’s Take One Picture project.
The school's project is linked with the Museum Resource and Learning Centre and Chewing the Cud, Memories of Herefords Old Livestock Market.
The project started with a five day period where the children were given a series of clues which they had to use to guess the object;
the object was revealed in a celebration assembly.
The object was a glass plate negative of a photograph taken by Alfred Watkins (famous Hereford photographer) of the Old Hereford Livestock Market;
The picture from the glass plate negative was sent home to parents, in the school newsletter, and they were invited to ask questions about it;
Each class then discussed the picture and created their own learning journey.
They have been writing, role playing, drawing, debating, printing and learning about photography.
Each class have now created a piece or pieces of work which reflects or is inspired by the children's thoughts, feelings, ideas, etc about the image.
An exciting project with the children taking the lead and direction for the end results.
As part of this project our infant classes have enjoyed a trip to Tillington fruit farm where they had a tour of the orchards learning about the different types of apple trees, made honey apple scones and learnt about honey bees and danced the honey bee dance.
The completed art will be on display with work from lots of other Herefordshire schools at St Peters church,Hereford from Saturday June 21 to Saturday July 6. Free entry.
