We value the creative arts and believe that children need the opportunity to develop their artistic skills through skills based lessons as well as through multiple opportunities to explore and apply learned skills in other contexts. The children work with our specialist arts teacher, Miss Smith, as well as with their regular class teachers on creative arts activities. We also organise a BIG ARTS week every year with a different theme. Last year BIG ARTS week was driven by a geography focus which helped children to explore different land uses and features (seaside towns, harbours, mountains & waterfalls) through visits and then through different art work shops. This year we have dedicated the Community Room as a place to display the art work from BIG ARTS week so why not take a peek in our ‘gallery’!
