It was far from a battle for us to head to Hastings to spend the first of two glorious days working alongside the amazing staff and pupils of Castledown Primary School.
A lovely quote from the school website says: “We have won many accolades in the past few years and although we are proud of our recent success we are a school who believe in the here, now and the future”.
In 2012 they achieved the Artsmark. Each class is named after an artist:
Mark Rothko in the Nursery, Andy Goldsworthy and Barbara Hepworth for Reception, Kandinsky and Matisse – Year 1, Picasso and Kahlo – Year 2, Hokusai and Monet – Year 3, Miro and Hockney – Year 4, Turner and Dali – Year 5 then Leonardo and Riley – Year 6 – what a great idea!
A huge thank you to Neil Small, headteacher, for organising our trip down to East Sussex today, and for taking the brave decision to invite us in tomorrow to work alongside the children on their first day back after the summer break.
