Art

  • Art skills are taught through half termly cross-curricular projects. Work is often displayed in classrooms, halls and in art exhibitions which gives children a sense of pride and feeling of success.  The school provides many opportunities for children to develop imaginatively and make decisions both in group work and individually. The children can explore a wide range of materials, looking at shape, texture, size, patterns and change, which involves team discussion and making judgements of their work.

    Art is not only important in encouraging original thought but it also helps in development of experiences in other areas of the curriculum, creating a visually literate and discerning society. We have reintroduced the use of sketchbooks from Year1 to Year 6 in order to demonstrate progress throughout their school career.  A great emphasis is placed on learning about the works of famous artists.
