This year was a particularly exciting one as it is the Year of Art
for our school. This meant that there was a particular focus on
developing and enhancing the creative, artistic talents of our
We have initiated several art projects that have proved to be very
successful and enjoyable for all the pupils involved.
Black History Month art project involved children researching and
investigating a famous black artist, and producing art work in a
similar style. The results of the project were both interesting and
creative, and are exhibited within the school.
As always, we
encourage and value contributions to our art curriculum from the school
community. In January, we held an open Art afternoon where parents and
carers had the opportunity to view children’s art work and become
artist themselves! The children became the art teachers demonstrating
and explaining various art styles and skills. The adults were
encouraged to produce pieces of art work based on the art style
demonstrated. This afternoon proved to be a successful collaborative
event for all involved.
We had other events including the
Spirited Arts competition. This project encouraged children to explore
concepts of spiritual and religious education in a creative way. The
theme this year was “Art in Heaven”.
We will be continuing to develop this in 2017-2018.
