Elfrida Primary School

Success for today; prepared for tomorrow. Nothing is beyond our reach.

Whole school class of art

Hello my name is Ms. Green and this is my new web page which I am very excited about!

I look forward to sharing with you as much of the amazing art that's being done around the school as I can.

This is especially important at the moment whilst, due to Covid, we are unable to invite parents in for assemblies and special events.

Which means that you don't get to see all the magnificent work being done here sadly.

So this page is an attempt to redress this. Watch this space!!

In Reception, we made some pavement art using chalk and masking tape.

In Alder class, we finally got to paint our pots!

In year 2, they are working from the nook ‘Lila and the Rain’, so we did some African art

Year 4 are studying the Romans, so Cypress class made these tremendous mosaics.

These astronaut pictures really are out of this world! Well done Alder class. Fantastic work!

Year 5 are learning about the Sun and Moon, so it was an excellent opportunity to paint these stunning sun/moon pictures using oil pastels and watercolours.

Year 5 are also learning about the vikings, so Alder class drew these fantastic Longships.

Amazing pottery day in Beech class!

Year 3 looked at paintings by American artist Georgia O'Keefe. They then painted their own brilliant versions using water colour and oil pastel.

Year 2 were learning about hot and cold colours. They made a paper collages out of cold colours.

Year 6 learnt about famous weaver Anni Albers, then wove their own masterpieces using a cardboard loom.

Year 4 really enjoyed learning how to use oil pastels to mono print today. It’s magic! Look at the fantastic results!

Year one looked at some paintings by Piet Mondrian and then made their own, using primary colours.

Ahh...School is back and I’m so pleased to be back teaching Art again!

Just look at these fabulous coil pots we made in Sequoia class.

Year 5 are studying ancient Greece, so we looked at classical pottery and compared it with modern day potters like Grayson Perry. Then we worked on our own clay coil pots. These will be ready to be painted soon!

Competition winners!


Hi everyone, sorry to keep you waiting.

I have decided I’m not sure if I really like competitions anymore because there has to be a winner, and when there’s a winner everyone else feels a bit sad because they haven’t won. But I don’t want any of you to feel disappointed. You are all so wonderful.

Opening up my mailbox and seeing your work each day has been the highlight of my lockdown and I am continually amazed by your talent. Some of your work has moved me so much with its sheer brilliance it has even inspired me in my own art.

 I can see that everyone who entered tried their absolute best and succeeded in making a truly beautiful picture. I sincerely wish I could give each of you a prize, and I must say, choosing was practically impossible for me, I even had to ask some of my artist friends to vote.

We're beginning to feel a bit festive in Year 5. These beautiful winter light pictures were created using oil pastel and chalk on black paper.

Alder class followed up on the pen and ink drawings, with some wonderful block printing. Everyone really enjoyed the process and the results were stunning!

Year 5 are studying the book "Floodland" by Marcus Sedgwick, so we made these dramatic pictures using ink and water with water colour paint.

Reception were exploring primary colours. They mixed the three primary colours to make make new colours, and recorded them on these fabulous wavy line paintings. Can you name the primary colours? How about the secondary colours?

Year 3 looked at Cubist paintings and then created their own representations of London. Can you guess the famous London landmarks that inspired them?

Happy Bonfire night from Acacia class! We used fluorescent paint and glitter to make these fun fireworks pictures.

A huge well done to those six from each class that made to the final display board. I'm so sorry we didn't have room for you all! Can you spot yourself?

Diversity Awareness display in the main hall

I'm so incredibly proud of the whole school for their hard work in making this display happen.

At Elfrida, we are artists!

A lot of work went into finding the correct skin tones...

For Diversity Awareness month, the whole school as been working on self portraits. We've been mixing skin tones out of primary colours and studying the proportions of the face. I will be assembling highlights from each class for a giant display in the main hall (photos to come) but here's a sneaky peak..

...And here's a fantastic selection from Alder class!

Year 4 used oil pastels and water colour paint to create these beautiful flowers. They were then used to create stunning displays that adorn the corridor.

Year 3 created these super "I am" posters. It was really nice discovering more about each other. Everyone enjoys reading about their friends!

Stunning "I am" pictures from Alder class.

Year 3 explored patterns using oil pastel relief technique. It was a really fun activity and the results were very effective.
