Art and Design
We love Art & Design at Wareside and we use our creativity to enhance a wide range of lessons. We also have an Art Club after school.
To support our lessons, we have visited the Henry Moore sculptures locally and have run a ‘Take 1 Picture’ project linked to the National Gallery. The children were involved in planning the week and thoroughly enjoyed recreating Seurat’s ‘The Bathers’ in many different ways.
One of our recent Creative Book Weeks (linked to World Book Day) was greatly enhanced with an Art afternoon, when the children broke into house groups and worked in mixed age and ability groups. They chose what media they used to create stunning portraits of giraffes, silhouetted African scenes or giraffe masks. Art enabled the children to freely express their ideas about the text book, ‘Zeraffa Giraffa’ by Dianne Hofmeyr.
