Art learning is well underway in classes and the children are enjoying exploring and developing their art skills and researching a variety of artists. This term, through a spiral curriculum, the children will be practising formal elements of art and design (Shape, line colour, texture, pattern, tone) to develop full appreciation for the subject and its form.

Sokari Douglas Camp is a Nigerian artist who is famous or her sculptures. Her work is predominantly sculptured in steel. She takes a lot of inspiration or her work from her Nigerian heritage and culture. We were inspired by her work 'The World is Now Richer' which was made as a tribute to people who lived their lives as slaves. She shared the important message: 'We were brave, we were strong and we survived'. We created our own pieces of Art work in the same style. We thought of a word to describe an attribute that the consider to be important.
