Art & Design

Art

A range of artistic activities is used to draw out natural creativity in children and to give them the opportunity to express themselves in two and three dimensions. A variety and progression of skills and techniques are taught throughout the school, using a range of different media. The pupils are encouraged to appreciate each other’s work and the work of local and famous artists, and we are lucky enough to have a diverse group or artists within our community, who regularly work with the children.

Design and Technology

Through topic related projects, children are taught to develop their planning, designing, making, modifying and evaluating skills by investigating a range of materials and components. Textiles, construction kits, wood, metal and other recyclable materials are explored. Our Year 6 children have great fun working with our school Caretaker, to build a go-kart that is raced at our local schools ‘Mini Grand Prix’.
