This morning, some of our staff from Todmorden High School visited Castle Hill Primary School in Todmorden. For the past few years, art teachers from our school have visited our local primary schools in order to give their year 6 classes a taste of what is in store for them when they join us in year 7.

Miss Pilling has visited the school for the past three Friday mornings now and delivered art lessons which the students have all thoroughly enjoyed. The theme of the lessons has been ‘Cupcakes’ which the year 6s have found very exciting, so far they have eaten, drawn and painted cupcakes and they are now designing a ‘collage cake’ where they will use a template and decorate it with different materials in order to create their very own 3-D slice of cake.

Miss Pilling will be visiting a number of other primaries in Calderdale before all their work is collectively exhibited at Todmorden Train Station’s Platform No.1 Art Gallery; we are all very excited for this event and hope to see as many people there as possible.
