Our Learning

Please take a look at the galleries on this page that capture just some of the learning our children have been engaging in.

Year R 'We Are Artists'

Our wonderful Giraffe and Tiger class pupils have been amazing us with their beautiful artwork, with colours inspired by their class animals.

Year 6 Artist visit

Year 6 were lucky enough to work with a local artist named Darrell Wakelam for the day. The children drew inspiration from the book 'Animals of the North' which features Dieter Braun’s drawings. They used this inspiration to create 3D wolf masks using card, tissue paper and paint. We think the children have created some fantastic final pieces!


Year 2 - Mixed unit

Year 2 started the year studying the book 'Mixed', a story all about colours who live separately until they realise being an inclusive community is important. Then they looked at 'The Colour Monster' thinking about personifying emotions into actions and descriptive sentences for poetry.


Year 4 Chocolate unit

 Year 4 have been working hard during the Autumn term on a unit focussing on chocolate. The children were inspied by a visit from a chocolatier who gave them oppurtunties to create their oen chocolate pizzas. Once the children had experienced this they started their research into different bars and how their packaging is created. The children designed their own choloate bars in DT, created the wrappers and then in english worte an advert to go with it. After this had all been created the children then wrote sales pitches, presented them to their classes and voted for a top five to present at 'Dragons Den', where two lucky candidates were choosen to create their chocolate bars this half term! Watch this space for the final product. 

 Year 1 Circus unit

In Autumn term, Year 1 were visited by a circus performer, Jeb the Jester. We spent the day learning circus tricks, working on our resilience and collaboration. Then they studied circus inspired art by Daniel Heath. Working carefully to evaluate their printing skills, they created their own circus inspired printing blocks, with the final pieces used together to create our own big top!

Year 5 Toy Inventions

During the Autumn term Year 5 had the oppurtunity to create CAMs models. The children thought about their target audience in order to design a toy that would suit them. The children really enjoyed creating their final piece and we think they did an excellent job!
