For this year's art exhibition, the girls from Nursery to Year 6 at our girls' school in London used Maths as the starting point for their artwork and in particular, numbers. It was amazing to see such variation across the school. Nursery and Year 5 investigated the Fibonacci sequence with Nursery producing some stunning splatter painted elephants and Year 5 looking at the sequence in nature. Year 6 made pottery candle holder houses based on detailed watercolour drawings, Year 4 based their ceramic numbers on a work by Jasper Johns, Year 3 produced ceramic Islamic tessellated tiles and Year 2 made fantastic pottery numbers that were actually growing! Year 1 investigated counting in twos using exquisitely decorated clay slippers and last but not least, Reception painted quarters of a circle to investigate fractions.
At the grand opening on 15 May, Prosecco flowed while parents enjoyed looking at the artwork and listening to a fantastic performance from our Junior Chamber Choir. The exhibition then stayed up for three more days which gave more visitors plenty of time to look before or after school, and enjoy some truly wonderful masterpieces.
