ST PETER’S CE PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Every child is an artist"
At St Peter’s, we place a huge importance on creativity and believe that art is hugely important in developing well rounded and imaginative minds. Every child has their own sketch book and these are used to jot down, sketch, annotate and develop ideas for their own pieces of art. The children of St Peter’s have a passion for Art and are accomplished in discussing and analysing famous artwork, their own and peers art. The children experience a wide variety of artistic mediums, both 2D and 3D. There is large focus on art history, drawing skills and use of colour, which are taught through all of our themes. We base each unit on different, well-known artists from different eras, to expose children to an extensive range of styles and forms.
We enjoy our annual Arts Week where the focus, for the whole week, is creativity. The whole school unravel their imaginations on one, carefully chosen, inspirational, piece of artwork. The children discuss, analyse, research and eventually create their own pieces of artwork. This week allows for a deepened understanding and appreciation for artwork and artists. We celebrate the children’s wonderful and skilful work by displaying their artwork around the school so they can feel pride and satisfaction from what they have produced.
