Early Years Foundation Stage

Our Y1 and Y2 classes experienced a brilliant outdoor learning Awesome Autumn Day.  This was an oppurtinity to undertake valuable cross curricular learning through the story 'The Leaf Thief' by Alice Hemming.  Our Art Lead worked with the children and observed their knowledge and skills that they have learnt in KS1.  What an exciting, inspiring day!

We invited a local artist into school to work with various year groups.  As you can see, the children showcased their drawing skills.  Take a look at our super art from Year 1 and 5.

Our pupils are amassadors of our school values and we wanted to promote our school ethos by giving every child the opportunity to enter a competition to design artwork for each value.  One winner from each year group worked with a graffiti artist to create this fantastic mural.  Children also engage with the mural to help them develop ideas in other artwork.

Our Year 1 after-school club enjoyed creating Autumn forests.  The children created the background by using clingfilm to mix the paint, then working on top with chalk.  The trees were printed with cardboard and finally the leaves were added using oil pastels.  Very atmospheric!

Our Year 5 and 6 talented pupils visited a sustainability exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool.  This was followed by a graffiti trail in the Baltic Triangle.  ZAP Graffiti visited school and worked with the children to produce art with a focus on climate change - taking part in the WOW schools exhibition in Wigan.  Such fantastic talent. 

Our Year 1 children achieved their Art Award Discover qualification from Trinity College London.  They had a fun week learning about African colours and patterns.  They researched the Nigerian sculptor Sakari Douglas Camp who sculpts with scrap metal and the children were amazed by the fantastic sculptures we have in Wigan.   This knowledge helped them create wonderful African masks and their positivity and perseverance enabled them to work towards their qualification. 

Year 5 enjoyed sculpting clay mushroom houses outdoors with Emily Calland from Wigan STEAM.  Emily was really impressed with their level of skills and what they were able to create. She was also  impressed with how polite and enthusiastic the children were.

Well done everyone!
