May 2023 - Over the last few weeks at Mrs Rydz art club, children from Years 4 and 5 have been working on creating real life paintings using different fruits. They carefully used acrylic paints and blended, shaded, added shadows and their work has really come to life! Miss Rydz and Miss Lightfoot are amazed by the paintings, and we hope you all are too! The children will be entering their artwork in the Thanet's Young Artists Festival 2023 and can see their work in the exhibition too. What an amazing talent each and every one of you have! You persevered and did not give up. Well done to you all!

Well Done to Evie in Year 4


At the end of the last academic year, St Ethelbert’s entered a competition for the 200th Anniversary of Ramsgate Harbour. The children were asked to design a new mug for the celebration. This week, I received an email from the Town Promoter on behalf of Ramsgate Town Council. Out of all the children in Thanet that entered, Evie won the artist competition. Evie will now have her design printed on 100 commemorative mugs, to be sold for the occasion. Well Done Evie! We are very proud of you.
