At the Boyle and Petyt Primary School we place high importance on the arts and we pride ourselves on the quality and progression that our children show in their work.
Children’s art work is celebrated in displays throughout the school. In lessons children have opportunities to build on their understanding and appreciation of art in a variety of forms and style and from a variety of cultures through a cross curricular topic approach. They learn to use different techniques, media and applications and develop an awareness of shape, colour, texture and pattern as well as understanding the properties of materials.
Art is often linked strongly to the curriculum topic and we also use opportunities for art to inspire thought, discussion and writing.
Throughout their time at this school pupils visit a number of art galleries and site specific installations.
