THE BIG DRAW FESTIVAL - OCTOBER 2020
The Big Draw Festival is an annual, worldwide celebration of drawing which takes place throughout the month of October.
The Big Draw is based around a theme. 2020 is the 20th anniversary of the festival, and since it’s always had a focus on how drawing can help us make sense of our world and environments, it’s fitting that this year the focus is on ‘Time to Go Green’.
The Big Green Draw aims to focus on our relationship with the environment and ecosystems that make up our world, highlighting the ways we can improve our relationship with nature in day to day life. This year’s festival looks to support positive change in this respect, and focusses on using sustainable materials and working practises, as well as more general ways to make a difference for the environment.
Smithy Bridge Primary School took part in The Big Draw by hosting a competition to design and poster to support the theme. The winner, chosen by the schools' Eco-council, would have their design professionally printed, kindly donated by GRAFFIC DETAIL. Well done to all the children who have taken part - your designs have been phenomenal!
WELL DONE TO OUR OVERALL WINNER... ALFIE!
Your design is being printed by Graffic Detail to display around school.

TT rock stars day
Hello Wembley! The rock stars of Smithy Bridge Primary have just about recovered after a day of Rock ‘n Roll. For those of you who are slightly confused, we are of course talking about our Times Tables Rock Star Day.
On Friday 21st February, children and staff arrived in school in their best rock star attire along with a plethora of rock themed accessories. All the Rockstars gathered in the hall to start the day with a bang! During the assembly, we showed off our amazing outfits and rock star poses, handed out certificates and had a times table competition. This was followed by a day of fun Maths activities in all classes.
The day was a great success and we look forward to our next Rock Star day. Rock on!
