West Bridgford Junior School


Year 5


Dear Parents and Carers,

Earlier today, we introduced the children to the focus for this year’s arts week – Pattern in our Community.  Following the success of last year’s art week, we are once again asking you to be involved.  We are delighted to be working with West Bridgford Infant School this year to create a community gallery with work from Foundation Stage to Year 6. We would like you all to help your child to take a photograph inspired by this year’s theme. 

Here are some possible ideas to inspire your search for Pattern in the Community:

  • Patterns in clothing from different cultures or religions
  • Patterns within nature
  • Patterns on or in buildings in our community

We would like you to choose a suitable subject to photograph and talk to your child about how best to do that (lighting, angle, focus, zoom, etc.).  These should be patterns you have found in the community and not ones you have created yourself. If there are people in any of the pictures, please ensure you have permission to use it within school and on display.

Below this text, there is a link for your child’s class to safely and securely upload the image your child takes.  Please ensure that the file name is the first and surname of your child. We will print these images at school.  The photographs will then be used as inspiration for various pieces of work produced during the week beginning 27th March.  We would therefore ask you to upload your photos NO LATER THAN midday on Monday 6th March to allow us to plan for an exciting week.

We hope that the images will be displayed alongside a selection of work at our community art exhibition – date and venue to be confirmed.

Many thanks for your support.  We are sure this will be an exciting project.

Mrs Cox and Mrs Arnold
