Art and design provide strong and purposeful links across all curriculum subjects and within the themes being explored in the classroom. Children experiment with, and then learn to master a wide range of media and tools. The children learn about artists, craft workers and designers and to respond thoughtfully and imaginatively to ideas, images and objects of many kinds and from many cultures. (For more information on Art in the curriculum, please see our school prospectus.)
We also offer the children the opportunity express their artist talents and interests at extra curricular Art clubs, which run on Tuesday and Thursday after school.
Please see below a small selection of some of the art work produced by the children in school.
