Art

Pupils in Acorns are encouraged to use a variety of media to explore their creative side.  This includes painting, drawing and modelling for special projects such as Anderson Shelters linked to world war topics.

Emphasis is placed upon enjoying the process rather than focusing on the end product.  Staff are encouraged to take part in this (and all areas of curriculum) to demonstrate that all of us have different skills and the ability to acquire new abilities through positive risk taking.  During Art sessions there are also opportunities for less structured interaction between pupils and staff which encourages a relaxing, creative atmosphere
