Miss Binning's Design Challenge!

Still image for this video
Miss Binning would like you to design and build a bridge that is strong enough to hold the weight of a book! You can only use things from around the house to build it.
Can you use as few things as possible? Can you test how strong your bridge is by counting how many books it can hold?

Art Activity from Sarah Taylor Silverwood- finding art and creating characters from things you see in your local area!

JK Rowling's Art Competition

Calling all budding artists! J.K. Rowling is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along. You should let your imagination run wild.

 

Every day, Rowling uploads chapters of the story and invites you to draw parts of it. What a fantastic illustration competition!

It has been fantastic to see so many entries into the Fordbridge Art Competition. Check out the entries below. The art pieces have really made us smile. We have had a really difficult decision trying to decide who should be the winner for each phase because of the high standards of art work.

 

Well done to everyone for taking part.

 

Congratulations to our winners.
