“I do not want ART for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.”
                                                                                                                                                                                                 -William Morris


At North Featherstone J & I, we inspire children to achieve their potential in their own unique way. 

Art and design embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity.

Children should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and how it contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

The National Curriculum for Art and Design aims to ensure that all pupils:
 produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
 become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
 evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
 know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

Look at the art we created during World Book Week!

This was linked to the book "Tuesday" by David Weisner. 

Every class created a piece of writing and a piece of art linked to the story.

We think we're fabulous and this display really proves it. 

Children in Year 5 and 6 were recently invited to take part in some pottery workshops where they created some Greek vases. 

These vases were then included in an exhibition at the Ridings Shopping Centre. 


Here is the email we received from Jasmine Studios. 


I am writing to let you know that the first week of the exhibition that your students participated in was a massive success.  I am delighted to say that the feedback from the general public has been very positive, with many admiring the impressive work that your students have produced.
In fact, one member of the public was so impressed that they expressed an interest in purchasing some of the student's work, we of course said it's not for sale. This is a testament to the high quality of the work that your students have produced, and I hope that it will encourage them to continue to develop their skills and talents.
We are very proud of our contribution. 
Here are some examples of the work that was displayed. 

Look at our display celebrating our work based on the work of Claude Monet. 

We have some very talented people in our school. 


Here are some close ups of our fabulous 3D clay art work. 

These are displayed in our entrance.

Can you spot them when you visit? 


Children at the expected level of development will:

- Safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function;
- Share their creations, explaining the process they have used;
- Make use of props and materials when role playing characters in narratives and stories.

In Key stage 1
Pupils should be taught:

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

- 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
Pupils should be taught

-to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
