The Acorns Primary and Nursery School

About This School

'Art is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.' (Quentin Blake) Children at The Acorns will be able to experiment with their ideas, their use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. Reflection on work by the children is encouraged. Sketchbooks will be used as a way of enabling the children to record experience and imagination. They will also help to develop their ideas and show progression in artistic skills. The skill/skills that are developed within each Art lesson are clear to all children. Opportunities for the children to create using a variety of tools, media and ICT are offered. Art is taught wherever appropriate links are made to topics and the wider curriculum. Additional provision for the teaching of Art (including art days) may be used to bring a love of art to both staff and children. Children will explore ideas and meanings through the work of artists and designers. Artists will visit school to provide inspiration and challenge. Children will be given opportunities to visit galleries and museums, developing their skills of observation and evaluation.
