Art is an integral part of the Key Stage 2 curriculum and provides an opportunity for children to express themselves in two and three dimensional media.
Children develop their fine art skills through observational and imaginative drawing and studying balance and perspective. They paint, mixing tones and shades and developing their use of primary and secondary colours and there are frequent opportunities for printing, collage, clay and textile work.
Art work is interwoven into the topics such as the Egyptians and Romans and Tudors and art history and the work and techniques of famous artists are studied.
In addition to the wealth of opportunities within the curriculum, there are after-school clubs for Art and Craft and children produce their own commercially printed Christmas cards for charity.
Local illustrators, painters, designers come to talk to and inspire the children and there are regular visits to local museums and galleries.
The Junior Art trophy is presented termly to a child who has excelled at art and there is a Creative Arts week when arts activities become the main curriculum focus.
