Mural Art


Year 6 Eagles, in Art today, learned about Mural Art. They learned that Mural Art just meant artwork that would be displayed on walls, in schools or even on the side of buildings and structures. Inspired with children’s books and art related videos, the children would then experiment with different drawing practises. Mr Altariva suggested they create a mural design possibly for the hallway, in the new build that will go on after the summer term . Individually, they have created so​me visually exciting and imaginative art pieces.

Easter Raffle

Now Year 6 are back from their residential trip they have been busy selling raffle tickets for the Easter Raffle. There are lots of fabulous prizes to be won (including tickets to Cadbury World) and ticket sales are going well.

Please don’t forget to donate an egg (Year 6 only) and if you would like to buy a ticket, please send money in with your child any day next week. The draw will take place on Friday 27th. GOOD LUCK!

African traditional art


Well done to Year 6 on completing their African Art project with Mr. Altariva. Eagles have been learning about the different patterns and techniques involved in African Art and have been researching various things to do with African culture and their traditions.

They then created stunning visual pieces in connections with masks and different cultural patterns, dependent on the different tribal regions. They have developed their painting skills, through understanding correct brush sizes and practising neat edges throughout their work. Furthermore, they have had to develop exciting colour schemes and tone, that reflect the African Tradition.

Day 1: Residential Trip at Pioneer Centre


Year 6 are having a fantastic time at their Residential Trip. The children are based at the Pioneer Centre in Shropshire.

The activities on day one have included high rope climbing, archery, muddy challenge course and fun with some huge inflatables.

The children have been fantastic and really enjoying their time, some inevitably missing their family.

Day two’s activity schedule looks even better – we can’t wait!

We’ll be posting another blog update later today. However for even more frequent updates, please follow the official school Twitter account @bellsfarm.

Chick cuddle!



Year 6 have had a welcomed break today from SATS preparation to cuddle our adorable chicks. We watched them hatch last week and it’s incredible to see how much they have grown already. Take a look at the adorable photos that had almost everyone’s hearts melting! (Even the boys!)

WE Day 2015


Seven lucky Year 6 children were recently selected to represent Bells Farm at the ‘WE Day 2015’ in Wembley. Both children and adults had an amazing day.

The show was incredible and we saw lots of acts such as Conor Maynard and Years and Years (currently no. 1 in the charts).

Lots of speakers took part and shared their inspiring stories of strength and courage. They gave us an insight in to how and why they have raised money for suffering children all around the world. It gave us such a lot to think about.

The children were an absolute credit to both Year 6 and Bells Farm. We’ll keep you posted with how our team of ‘Change Makers’ intend to change the world!
