Year 8 trip to Tonbridge Art Gallery

Sara, the art educator and Emily the Art curator greeted us and introduced us to the four artists, Jeanette Barnes, Christy Burdock and Meghana Bisineer and Louise Bourgeois. The work ranged from huge chalk pastel drawings by Jeanette Barnes showing the construction work of the Olympic Park to small dry point prints by Louise Bourgeois. After an interesting guided tour, talk and discussion around the exhibition we chose our favourite artwork and sketched it in our sketchbooks.

Most of us really enjoyed Louise Bourgeois work because we all felt her work was amusing, intruiging and ‘quirky’. Abi did a study of her work called ‘Woman in a bathtub’. Finlay copied one of her dry point print called ‘Sculptress’ and Sam chose ‘Scissors’. Rufus, Dylan and Honor selected sections of Christy Burdocks art, which were large scale illustrative pencil drawings with thought provoking topics. We had the whole gallery to ourselves which meant we could move around and talk about the artwork as if it was a classroom. It was fascinating to see such a variety of drawings ranging in size, style and techniques. A great art trip.

Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.

12 March 2020

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
