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.
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!
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!
