Creative Development

VISUAL ARTS

As part of their creative development programme, students in Reception 1 and 2 take part in Art lessons once a week. Arts and crafts activities are also carried out during literacy and numeracy focused lessons.

During these lessons, students begin to explore different media and respond to a variety of sensory experiences; they create simple representations of events, people, objects through different media; they start using their imagination to express and communicate ideas, feelings and thoughts using a range of materials and suitable tools.

Art lessons can be carried out in the classroom but also in our outdoor classroom weather allowing. All Art lessons are run by a qualified teacher and supported by a teaching assistant.
