Forms 3 & 4 Take Part in 'The Big Green Draw' National Drawing Festival 2020

Nov 2020
Every October children at Senior House look forward to taking part in the World’s Biggest Drawing Festival and this year was no exception with another opportunity to celebrate the transformative effect of drawing for Forms 3 and 4. The theme: ‘Climate of Change’ seemed particularly apt when sustainability is very much an on-going focus at St John’s. 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of The Big Draw and the campaign that shines a light on the need for drawing and its role as a tool for expression, creativity, learning and sharing ideas.

F3 had a brilliant time testing their DT motorised vehicles across Green Court! It was an exciting time as they all waited to see which ones worked, went quickly enough, went in a straight line or decided to do their own thing! #design #technology #vehicles #problemsolving https://t.co/FaHVkGMUCx
