Art and Design
Each term, each class takes part in 2 art days. A range of experiences are planned by class teachers and each class studies the work of different carefully chosen artists. There is a strong emphasis on the development of skills – drawing, using colour, texture, form, printing and pattern - and lessons are planned to ensure there is progression as children move through the school.
We have also been fortunate enough to be involved in a range of projects with external agencies- including 'Beneath our Feet' which was a joint project co-ordinated by Queen's Hall, Hexham and funded by English Heritage. You can see more information about the project and our amazing animations telling the history of the mining industry in our village on Class 3's page. Our art curriculum is enhanced by visits to performances, exhibitions and art galleries like the Baltic- have a look at the photos on the Class 4 page from our recent visit to the Baltic as part of our Landmarks project. We are working towards our 'Artsmark' award. We look forward to sharing our artistic experiences and creations with you.
