At Summerswood Primary School we recognise that Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. Our Art curriculum enables children of all abilities to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of different media.
We promote critical and reflective thinking of other artists, craft workers and designers as well as their own works of art. The skills the children acquire are applied to cross-curricular subjects, helping them understand how art and design have shaped our history and culture.

The children have created cave paintings as well as beautiful work showing Stone Henge.
Year 6 have been learning about the history of Maya people. They created these pieces of art based on the Day of the Dead Festival and the Mayan writing system.
The children have been learning about the Romans and have created these Roman coins using clay modelling and paint.
Over the first half term, the children in Reception have been thinking about kindness. They created these hearts using a range of media.
