Impressionist paintings were done by Burton End students at Castle Manor Academy ahead of a visit to France.

The youngsters worked with arts teacher Becky Baldwin to create their impressionist styles on September 17.

They began by drawing pictures using pencil, before turning the pencil drawings into painted canvasses.

The project is part of a full range of transition events for pupils from Burton End and other local primary schools to help pupils feel comfortable before making the move upwards to Castle Manor Academy.

This project is intended to get the pupils thinking about the work of the impressionists before they go on a trip to France in the near future.

Ms Baldwin, who formally worked at Castle Hill Middle School before the schools’ reorganisation, was enthusiastic about the paintings.

“The children have worked really hard the paintings are fantastic.

“I’m really looking forward to working more with these students over the coming months and to going on the France trip with them soon.”

Madeleine Vospa, deputy head at Burton End, was also at Castle Manor for another event on the morning the paintings were created.

“They are really working hard and it was lovely to be able to come and see more of our students working here at Castle Manor Academy,” she said.

The Castle Partnerships covers Castle Manor and Place Farm, but also works with other local primary schools.
