Rainbows for NHS

Last week we saw lots of you creating rainbows to stick on your windows to cheer up everyone in your local community.

The NHS staff have created a staff wellbeing room at Macclesfield District General Hospital. They are asking for bright uplifting pictures and messages to cheer them all up.

All pictures must be A4 so that they can be laminated for infection control purposes. If you are able to laminate them before sending PLEASE do.

Send your pictures to - 

 Ian Howarth, Human Resources, Macclesfield District General Hospital, Victoria Road, Macclesfield, SK10 3BL

Feel free to share them with us before you post by emailing or sharing them on the Marlborough Primary School facebook link.                                                                                                                                      

Did you visit Chester Zoo for a virtual day at the zoo on 27th March? We did and then tried out shadow drawing after creating a colour wash background using watercolour paints.


   Here are our shadow drawings.


There are some amazing ideas for arts and craft activities on this website to keep all age groups entertained.

YouTube channel for New York Times-bestselling author and illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka. Each day he shows you how he draws some of his characters as you complete your own ideas alongside him.


Mo Willems invites you into his studio every day for his lunch doodle! Grab some paper and pencils, pens, or crayons and join Mo to explore ways of writing and making together while he chats about his characters Pigeon, Piggie, and Elephant.


Some fun craft activities for all ages:
