Art

Art and craft is an integral part of the school’s life and learning.  Children’s creativity and imagination is developed by building on their knowledge, skills and understanding of materials and processes.  We feel that it is important that in addition to learning about recognised artists and their work, children should be able to express their creativity, ideas and feelings through art.  Art enhances and deepens understanding of other areas of learning too. 

 

We place a high value on the work produced by children and there are usually many attractive displays of artwork around the school and grounds.  Currently our hall displays reflect a History Timeline project led by Mrs Smith.

 

Mrs Smith is our Subject Leader for Art, Design and Technology.
