Visit by Artist

Last week we welcomed Emma Cownie, a local Artist who came to visit Y5/6 as part of Welsh Week.

Emma was very impressed by our children, and took the time to email the school to let us know.

Dear Miss Simons,

I was invited to come and talk to your Y5 pupils this morning by Mrs Lewis. I am writing to you to say how much I enjoyed visiting your bright and friendly school. 

I was really impressed by the enthusiasm and excellent behavior shown by your pupils. They asked lots of really thoughtful and interesting questions. I hope that I have inspired a few future artists. 

The pupils were a real credit to you and your school. Please also pass on my thank to all the staff who attended the chat, including Mrs Lewis who I didn’t have a chance to speak to before I left,

Best wishes,

Emma Cownie 

The children really enjoyed her talk, and even had a go at replicating one of her pieces of art.
