Year 3 Film production workshop

This Year 3 workshop involved the children taking on different roles as a film crew and understanding all the  elements that go into making a short film.  Some of the roles included gaffer, director and assistant director.  Working in groups, the children acted out the scenes and enjoyed seeing the final film uploaded on to their Google Classroom.  The workshop was delivered by Mahalia Belo and Matthias Pilz.

Year 1 Mapping movement- A journey through colour 

This Year 1 workshop was a playful exploration of what a journey can look like using coloured ribbons in space and coloured crayons on paper.  Working in pairs, the children were asked to make two journeys and record their journeys by making two different drawings.  Partners collaborated, with one taking a roll of ribbon for a walk, marking their journey as they went and the other observed their partner's journey and recorded it via drawing on paper, showing evidence of the journey and creating a type of map. Then they swapped.
The children created a wonderful colourful web of ribbon that represented all of their journeys, alongside some very wiggly and expressive drawings.
 Workshop designed and delivered by Sarah May and Isobel Manning.

Stoneydown Capital Arts Project 

As the first-ever London Borough of Culture funding was made available for local schools who applied to be part of the Capital Arts project to create permanent artworks throughout their buildings and learning spaces. Children from Stoneydown Park explored creatures of flight such as birds, butterflies and bats. They studied the shapes of these creatures made in flight; produced sketches, collages and wire drawings to create large, outdoor metal and ceramic sculpture pieces made from recycled materials. Enjoy our slideshow and video.

Stoneydown Sticks Together

We wanted to be very visible in the Walthamstow Art Trail 2019 and to make something that every child in the school could participate in - to symbolise each child’s creativity and our togetherness as a school and local community.

The windy weather in February provided lots of sticks for us to collect, whittle and paint.

We made a huge and beautiful art installation for the public to enjoy!
