Friday 18th December 2020


In case you missed the news on Thursday 17th December 2020, some Year 6 pupils and Miss Jeffs appeared on BBC Midlands today talking about an art project they took part in earlier in the year.


The children were absolutely amazing and spoke so positively about the project - they should be so proud of themselves. It was great!


You can watch the news item on the iplayer: scroll to approx. 23 minutes.

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!


Here is the link for more information


Remember, if you enter on Twitter to use the hashtag #theickabog and don't forget to tag us @fordbridge2013 so we can see what you have drawn!

Miss Hubbard and Miss Binning's Art Competition- a chance to look at the entries!

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.


Miss Hubbard and Miss Binning

You could stick them to the page or dip them in paint first.



Using recycled carboard, you could cut out shapes for parts of the face and layer them up. Finally, colour each section.


What face will you create?
