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!
