summer art activities

If you're getting bored this summer, fear not! These websites have some excellent art and craft activities to keep you busy.


Every Friday lunchtime, Miss Quinn and Miss Jerrard run an Art & D.T. Club. Each term, new children will have the opportunity to join in the fun.

Keep an eye on this page to see what we’ve been creating and even have a go at home!

Look out for competition entries and skills' development on the Art Club dispay.


galleries and exhibitions 

The Juniors took part in ‘Art Day’ on Monday 14th January.

The children created their own pieces of art work inspired by the style of the artist their year group were studying.

Year 3 - Heather Galler - folk art 

Year 4 - Romero Britto - pop art

Year 5 - Sonia Delaunay - abstract/geometrical art

Year 6 - Camilla d'Errico - manga


The children’s completed work is going to be professionally printed, framed and displayed in a gallery that will be created for pupils and parents to view in the Junior hall.

Parents will have the opportunity to purchase their child’s framed work on the day of the exhibition- more details to follow next week.

Please see the times below and save the date for this exciting event.

Years 3 and 4 on Monday 11th February from 2:30pm – 5:00pm 

Years 5 and 6 on Tuesday 12th February from 2:30pm – 5:00pm

Last entry on both evenings: 4:45pm

Profits raised from this event will be used to buy additional art resources for the children to use.
