Art Competition Deadlines Coming Up!
Posted by Mrs L Baker
We have two exciting art competitions coming up! The first is being run by Berkeley Hunt Agricultural Society,
who will provide the school with a wheelbarrow and 2 bags of compost. Using the theme "Follow the Yellow
Brick Road â€“ At the end of the road you will find good things,â€ the children need to design a garden to go in
the wheelbarrow with vegetables or flowers. How you interpret the theme is entirely up to you. We will then
use the winning design and create the wheelbarrow by appealing to local suppliers to help with the
contents. The wheelbarrow will be judged at Berkeley Show on Sunday 24th June. A prize fund of Â£500 will be
awarded to the winning school. We would like the children, on a rota basis, to stay with their wheelbarrows to
answer any questions from the general public, so we will be asking for volunteers who will be given free child
entry tickets to the show by The Show Committee. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term
pages and the closing date is 18/5/18.
The second competition is to design a wooden castle to be carved into the top of the large wooden stump in
the courtyard near Year 1 and fairy doors to go at the bottom. The winning design will see their creation carved
by a real wood artist who will be working with the school. The design could be based on Berkeley Castle, a fairy
tale/ book or completely from your imagination. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages
and the closing date is 18/5/18.
