Art and Design

Creativity matters to us at Beech House and we provide a rich variety of visual, tactile and sensory experiences to enable our children to develop their talents. They learn about colour, form, texture and patterns as well as exploring the work of artists, designers and craftspeople. Links are made to many areas of the curriculum.

Art is well resourced with many different materials and tools available to complete 2D and 3D projects either individually or in groups. Access to the junior ICT suite enables the children to carry out research and produce art work using computers. Digital cameras are also used.

All children's art work is celebrated through display, with regular opportunities for parents to view it.

'My favourite lesson is Art. I like it because I like making all sorts of things. Some time I will make something wonderful.'
