Art & Design

In Art and Design children use creativity and imagination to design and make products for a specific purpose. From box models to moving monsters, the subject offers a creative outlet for pupils.

Our children are taught from nursery age to create art work using a range of materials and tools. We love using pencils, pastels, paint, charcoal, textiles and modelling material such as clay and modrock. They will also use tricky techniques of collaging, threading, weaving and applique to create their own pieces. 

Sketchbooks are introduced to all children and are carried with them throughout their school life.By the time our children reach year six they can reflect on how they started as a 5 year old artist and compare this to how they are now. Drawing is a pleasurable and sometimes challenging skill and develops fine motor control as well as acting as a relaxing and sociable activity.
