Sir Francis Drake

Our Jubliee Art Project


Every class is looking at one particular decade of the Queen’s reign.  They might be looking at fashion, art, music or technology and thinking about how things in Britain have changed.  Over the course of this term every member of our school will have the chance to work with a professional artist to create a piece of artwork that will be permanently on display in our school.  Each child has designed and will now make a clay tile that we will put together into a mural which will be displayed in the playground.


This week Year 1 and Denali class worked with Kim to complete the first step of their tile. Kim is a professional ceramicist.  The first step she does with the children is make their tile either by adding clay to it or carving clay from it.  Next time the children work with her they will be adding colours to their work before they get taken away to be fired.  We can’t wait for the final piece to be ready!
