Art Week 2017 - 2018

This years Art Week has been packed full of trips, creating, discussions and lots and lots of patterns! Year 1 and year 6 have been busy taking part in workshops at the William Morris Gallery, Year 2 visited Tate Britain, Year 3 and 6 went to the Tate Modern, Year 4 went to the Portrait Gallery and finally Year 5 took a trip to the wonderful Saatchi Gallery. We feel very lucky to have so many Art Galleries to visit right on our door step!

We have been exploring patterns in different cultures and celebrating Black History month throughout the week. Have a look at our wonderful artwork and check out our `Artists of the Week`, made by our talented teachers.  

The whole school worked together to create one large piece of Artwork for the main hall. The children drew around their partner`s hands and decorated them in the theme of their pattern.
