SPECIAL EVENTS

Arts Week

2 to 6 July 2018

Mount Pleasant celebrated Arts Week.

During the week each year group had a chance to showcase their work related to music, dance, poetry and drama to their parents in a short assembly. The children also showcased their gifts and skills in the Talent Show.

The children took part in a competition to design a Teddy Bear and the winners won a Teddy Bear and if they stayed for hot dinners they were entered into a raffle to win a Teddy Bear.

The week culminated in the Arts Exhibition where every child had a piece of artwork exhibited and the children and parents were invited to look around at all the wonderful artwork produced throughout the year. Some artwork was inspired by the book ‘The Lost Words’ and children created different pieces based on one of the animals or poems featured in the text. A fabulous way of bringing English and Art together.

Mount Pleasant really has got talent!
