Barton Clough flies high at the start of its Artsmark Award journey

Children from Year 4, Year 6 and Oak classes at Barton Clough Primary School took part in ‘100 Waving Kites’, a creative learning project delivered by Factory International. A team of artists visited the school to deliver the session, allowing pupils to make kites and decorate them with self-portraits. The Barton Clough kites, along with those from other schools, were set up as the welcoming exhibition at Aviva Studios in Manchester, meaning that everyone who goes into the gallery is warmly welcomed by waving kites.

The fun didn’t stop there, children had the opportunity to travel by bus from Stretford to Manchester to see their exhibition in person. For some of our children this was their first time on a bus, and they loved the visit!

In further exciting news, this year the school has registered to start its journey for an Artsmark Award, and this project was the first step in promoting a love of the arts within Barton Clough, showing children the importance of the arts as valid career paths.
