Arts Award Superstars

A big Corpus Christi congratulations to the children in Year 2 who have just received their Arts Award Discover certificates from Trinity College London. The children worked on their arts adventure throughout Year 1 and have now been recognised for their efforts. Arts Award  Discover is in three parts – Part A: Discover, where children discover the arts around them and take part in different arts activities. Part B : Find out, when they find out about artists and their work, and Part C: Share, where the children share their experiences with others. Well done Key Stage 1 artists!
