Our School Emblem

Every child in the school took part in a fantastic art project to create an individual clay tile representing their heroes and inspirations. Professional potter, Jon Williams, the Flying Potter from Eastnor Pottery, guided the children through the process. Our tiles were cleverly designed to represent our school emblem; the Whittington Tump reflecting the Christian cross.

Art at Whittington Primary School

A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.


 In Key Stage 1 Children will be taught;

to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products

to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination

to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space

about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

 In Key Stage 2 children will be taught;

to create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas

to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials (for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay)

about great artists, architects and designers in history.
