Inspiring Artists at Abingdon Prep
Recently, Abingdon Prep had two very special visitors to the Art department at - ‘Twoo’ the tawny owl and ‘Megatron’ the southern white-faced owl. These beautiful birds provided the inspiration for some fantastic artwork from the boys in Year 5 who drew the owls, paying close attention to the textures and facial details, in preparation for making sculptures. The Year 8 boys also thoroughly enjoyed their latest project where they explored architecture and painted a selection of industrial landscapes inspired by L.S Lowry. The project culminated in a whole class mural, where the boys used photography to put themselves into the artwork. Striking a Lowry pose caused much hilarity, but achieving a sense of perspective in such a large composition was rather more challenging. The finished product was a masterpiece! Take a look at their art department and all that Abingdon Prep has to offer. Visit the website to book a visit:

Christ Church Cathedral School Visit The Story Museum
The Reception, Form 1 and Form 2 boys enjoyed a cosy morning of storytelling and craft-making - all in French! They loved listening to Le Gruffalo and joining in on cue with the correct words and noises. Later, the variety of costumes to dress up in gave further opportunity to practise French: “Je suis un roi”. “Et moi, je suis un canard”! Luckily all animals, wizards and other strange characters were left back at The Story Museum and the Prep-Prep returned back in CCCS uniform in time for lunch.
