Our aim is to equip children with a variety of skills and experiences to allow them to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and craft techniques. We build upon prior knowledge from Nursery through to Year 2. We do this by providing a stimulating environment with positive attitudes towards art, developing exploration, creativity and imagination as a form of communication and expression and developing skills such as observation, perception and manipulation of media, materials and tools. We also provide opportunities to develop the skills which enable children to evaluate their own work and those of other artists, including those from different times and cultures. We also aim to ensure children know about great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
Why not show off your child's artistic talents by applying for an online competition!

Arts Week 2017
Arts week takes place during 3rd April to 7th April 2017. Our theme for the week is 'Bears' to tie in with the launch of Birmingham's 'Big Sleuth' project. Our theme for the bear sculpture is based upon the sun. Also known as the 'Sun' bear our inspiration has been taken from artwork based around images of the sun. Many artists have produced colourful and striking images with which our children will become familiar with during Arts Week. During Arts week each class will take inspiration from an artist and every child in school will use the artist's style and medium to create a bold 'sunshine' design of their own. These designs will be used to decorate the 'bear' Sculpture.
Arts Week is not just about creative work but the performing arts such as drama and music which play an important role throughout this week also. It's hopeful our 'Bear' themed Arts Week will get the juices flowing and release the creativity inside every one of us!
The Big Sleuth Bear sculpture is revealed!
After many weeks of hard work, our bear 'Ray' has been completed and revealed to the whole school during assembly time. We think he looks amazing and we hope you will do too!
