Buzz and Scuttle

April 7th, 2020 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)
Buzz and Scuttle – from Mrs Hampton.
 
Marian Hill is an artist and illustrator who has developed a fascination with insects, particularly beetles, Marian is Mrs Hampton’s sister. Her project Buzz and Scuttle was inspired by a research trip to the Digitisation Department at the Natural History Museum in London and a tour through the amazing insect collection in the basement. With the help from a number of ecologists and entomologists she has developed a project called Buzz and Scuttle. The aim of Buzz & Scuttle is to teach children through art and exploration, how extraordinary and important insects are. As well as designing a mini beast identification poster, Marian has been collaging as many UK beetles as possible. She is posting a beetle each day on her twitter feed @hill_marian . You can also have a look at her wider work and the way she uses collage to produce her beautiful pictures at https://www.marianhill.co.uk . Many more schools will be joining the project in the coming months. However, I know Marian is delighted that St Joseph’s is the first school in the UK to use her Buzz & Scuttle Mini-beast Identification chart and beetle identification cards. You might like to use these to help identify any insects you find as part of the Great Bug Hunt 2020. Marian has already been impressed by the beautiful butterfly collages made by the Reception Class at the end of the spring term and would love to see any other collages inspired by her work. Happy Hunting. Mrs Hampton

Postcards of kindness

April 7th, 2020 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in News - (0 Comments)
During the first week of self isolation Hollie in Year 7 made 13 handmade cards after seeing a post about #postcardofkindness which encourages people to send a card/letter to the elderly, who have now self isolated themselves.
 
Hollie sent them to a Residents Home in Whitley Bay and her first two responses have come back.
 
Cath was the first to open her card, it made her day. This is fantastic, well done Hollie 👏.
