Home school review meetings this week. Please remember that due to these meetings there are no clubs this week.

Art

Art in our school makes a major contribution to the emotional and creative development of our pupils. We aim to encourage children to question, reflect and become inspired through studying the works of artists, craft workers and designers from a range of cultures and contexts, time and places. Through their practical experiences with a variety of media, the children will be developing their creative and aesthetic skills.
 
We aim to encourage the children to take a pride in their own achievements and to respect their own and others’ work. By looking at the work of other artists, children will be helped to understand that there is no “correct model” and that art is a response to the world around us.
We aim to:
* Use the work of children and established artists to provide a colourful and stimulating environment throughout the school.
* Encourage pupils’ development of creative, imaginative and practical skills through a balanced programme of art, craft and design activities, working individually, in groups and as a whole class.
*Extend pupil understanding of how ideas and feelings can be communicated in visual and emotional context.
