Mrs Clifford's LKS2 Lego Club



Celebrating Sleaford



We want to change the two glass panels in the front door of the Alvey to stained glass. I've attached the shape of the panels and some of the images I'm going to include in my own design. You could have a go at designing a window yourself? We'll include some of the best images in the final design. Open to anyone who came to the school, attends the school or has a connection with the school.



Our Eco-Team are running a competition which they launched in our assembly on Friday afternoon. Can you think of four environmental issues and draw and/or write about them to fill in the spaces in our owl's 'tummy' and chest? 50p to enter with all proceeds to 'Plastic Free Sleaford'. The template is below.



Our Art at the Princess Royal Sports Arena

Emily's Mum wanted to say: I’ve had my booster at Princess Royal Sports Arena, don’t like needles but the lovely pictures decorating the arena and the booth I was in done by the William Alvey children really cheered me up and put me at ease! Well done.

Printing cowslips on Harry Gregson Day (27.9.21)



I should have been writing the WASP but instead I was drilling ceramic poppy heads made by last year's Y6s and gluing them on to metal stems that we are going to arrange around our air raid shelter for the Heritage Open Days next week.

Our Year 6 children, who left in July, made some ceramic poppies at the Hub-Sleaford that we will fix to metal stems and 'plant' outside our air raid shelter.

Our friends in Lahore made these posters for the Climate Day in Sleaford on 4th September

Suzie did a brilliant job with the Arts Award Explore run by the @hubsleaford



Nick Smith, our sign writer, left us a bag of sticker scraps, so they used them in Year 3 to create their own Mondrian art work.







Poppy Project in Y6





In Year 5, Mrs Francis' Class learned about Lowry, his style & subjects & his very limited use of colours (Prussian blue, vermillion, yellow ochre, black and white). The children then chose from a selection of black and white photos of old Sleaford to reproduce in Lowry’s style.

Year 3 Artwork 22.10.20

Mrs Weston's class have been making owl collages. Twhooly amazing!

WW2 Mosaic. We made a special mosaic for an ugly gap in front of the new door in our air raid shelter.

Matthew H. Year 5.



Y3 are practicing collaging techniques in readiness for making their own art work in the style of Windows by Jeannie Baker which we are looking at in Literacy. These collages represent the children’s interests and personalities.

Local artist, Laura Davies, who usually works with paint, has created this sculpture in memory of our Project 72-WW1 Alvey Boys.

Protest Art



This afternoon, Mrs McMillan joined us, via Teams, for an art lesson. We used pictures of ourselves in a thinking pose and then drew pictures of all of things we think about. We then stuck them above our head as if our thoughts were spilling out.




During lockdown Place2Be have launched a series of art projects for parents and teachers to do at home or school together. Each project is designed to support wellbeing whilst exploring fun and engaging themes. The latest project is aimed at year 6 children transitioning to secondary school in September. It’s called ‘River to Sea’ and uses the metaphor of sailing a boat down a river (primary school) then out into the sea (secondary school). All of the projects are free to download and they might be a useful resource for the teachers or parents at The Alvey. Place2Be will be continuing to release a new project every two weeks and hope to launch a project towards the end of the summer holidays to support children in going back to school full time.

We want to use scrap metal found in and around the Sleaford area to create a large owl sculpture The owl, a symbol of both wisdom and foresight, would demonstrate the importance of recycling our limited natural resources.
