Art Events and Activities

Take One Picture Project July 2022

Our Take One Picture Project has been an extremely enjoyable end to the academic year (2021/22).  The children across school have taken part in a whole range of activities based upon the work of Wassily Kandinsky.  The image selected shows his colour study of squares with concentric circles. The children used this as their starting point and then moved on to look at other pieces of Kandinsky’s art.  Kandinsky believed that colour could be heard through music and that music could be seen through colour.  Some classes used music to inspire their Kandinsky based pieces, some baked to produce the concentric circles, some used ICT and Year 4 had a visiting art teacher to give them an art specialist’s lesson on Kandinsky which they enjoyed very much.  It has been wonderful to see the children embracing the image and using it as a stimulus for their work across all curriculum areas.

Art - The Horbury Way

The Children in Year 5 took part in an Art Workshop with Edgelands Art.  They created fantastic pieces of artwork which were displayed during the Platinum Parade at the Horbury Show.   Through the artwork, the children made cross curricular links to History and the local area as the train wagon wheels produced by local company Charles Roberts were used in the Victorian times to transport coal from the local mines.

Year 2 Clay Pots

The children in Year 2  designed and made a clay biscuit holder linked to their English book ‘The Biscuit Bear’ written by Mini Grey.  They painted their holders and they looked super! Well done Year 2!


Year 4 People in Action

Our Year 4 children used our wildlife garden area to create images of ‘People in Action’ as part of their art topic. They used sticks of different sizes and thickness to create super images.

Daffodil art

Our Reception Ladybirds created beautiful daffodil images for Mothering Sunday!  They show attention to detail and clear observational art skills.  They were created using a range of art materials and methods including pencil, coloured pencils, collage and paint.
