Welcome to our online Arts Gallery. This section of the website will be updated with photographs and videos of our Art Work, Performing Art pieces and Design and Technology work. We will be adding pictures from each year group - so keep an eye out! We hope you enjoy.

Some of our children visit Southampton Art Gallery
Our children really enjoyed their art gallery experience. They not only produced a superb wire sculpture which are all now displayed in our library at school but they saw some beautiful art within the gallery itself. A huge thank you to the Education Team for making their day so special. The children really appreciated the different styles of art and the mediums used. Together the children looked deeply into some of the many beautiful paintings... which gave us lots of historical clues about the time period.
 
 

Year 1 had a visiting artist, Fatima share some great clay skills

Year 1 experienced a clay workshop with a local artist called Fatima. As their topic was The Secret Garden she designed the children's clay learning around this. Everybody learned to coil (this involves making a pancake shape and attaching sausages to it) to form a clay pot. Can you remember the name of the liquid that kept the clay together? Yes, you are right...it is called slip. On the lid of the pot the children created a cactus using photographs of them for inspiration. Finally, they painted their pots before displaying them in the classroom. A wonderful experience for the children to work alongside a professional artist and to find out that she always makes mistakes with her artwork too!

A group of children from EYFS through to Year 6 enjoyed creating some 'Masterpieces' for the new build It was a great to see the children persevering when they found it tricky. The children were great at reminding each other about 'Growth Mindset' and were so proud of themselves when they saw the finished products. The children used classic story books as a stimuli. See if you can guess which books they were inspired by from looking at the pictures!

Some of our children from EYFS to Year 6 went to the theatre on a Sunday to watch T'was the Night Before Christmas. It was magical and we will definitely booking more theatre trips soon.

Textiles with Year 1! The children used flour and water resist to create firework patterns, then they added the dye!

INSET Day

 

On a recent Inset day, our staff enjoyed taking part in a practical Art INSET day. Jayne Stillman (the LA inspector/ advisor for Visual and Performing Arts) came in and carried out different textiles and sculpture based activities. She looked at the teachers Art planning and came up with exciting new ideas to link in with our topics. The teachers had a chance to learn new skills themselves and try out the activities which they will be carrying out with their year groups! Have a look at the pictures below...

 

We are looking forward to carrying out these activities with the children!
