Outreach Excitement for Local Primary Pupils
We recently welcomed 60 enthusiastic Year Five pupils from St Barnabas CE Primary School to RGS for a day of creative exploration as part of our Outreach & Partnerships programme.
The visiting pupils enjoyed participating in a carousel of activities, delving into the realms of Art, Design Technology, and Textiles. Each session provided hands on interactive activities to spark creativity, ignite imaginations, and provide an immersive experience for the pupils.
In the Art Workshop, pupils enjoyed graphic printing, creating visually captivating prints. The Textiles session proved to be equally exciting as the pupils crafted personalised pennants, incorporating their initials into their creations.
The final session of the creativity day took place in Design Technology, where pupils enthusiastically embraced the challenge of crafting clocks. From hand sawing and sanding the shape to transferring intricate designs and constructing the clock mechanism, the session provided a hands-on experience.
A Teacher from St Barnabas CE Primary School said: Thank you for the most fantastic time at RGS. Every single one of our children loved it! The feedback they have given us is fantastic. Thank you so much for the lovely opportunities they had for Art, Textiles and Design Technology. Please pass our thanks on to the teachers who were all amazing, as well as to the Sixth Form students who helped. They were all kind, patient and helpful. We have returned with fantastic creations. I am so grateful you took the time to plan something of that nature for us”.
The RGS Outreach & Partnerships programme creates community engagement by working with local schools. Each Department at RGS provides Outreach and Partnership opportunities to the local community with teachers and pupils lending their expertise.
We look forward to hosting more engaging events in the future and continuing to strengthen our bonds with the wider community.
