Art Link Visit
On the 18th and 19th of May, staff and children from Sutton Benger and Oaksey met together to collaborate on a joint art project. Children from years 4 and 5 visited one another’s schools and conducted an audit of art on display in each school, followed by the planning and making of two large pieces of art to be put on display.
On the Wednesday, we hosted the children and teachers from Oaksey and Finn, Philippa and Zac did a fantastic job of taking them around the school to look at different forms of art on display. After our walk round, we then discussed and recorded the types of art we could see and whether there were any art forms we felt we didn’t spot as much of. After break, we then planned a big art piece, which the children would then create on the Thursday. We discussed a piece which incorporated print work and ICT would be appropriate, as these were the areas identified from our audit.
On Thursday we were welcomed at Oaksey Primary School, where we created our joint piece planned the previous day. We also then had a tour of Oaksey, in which we identified examples of art on display and planned another big piece of art-this time with a focus on a piece which could be displayed in the outdoor area. We look forward to meeting up again soon to complete this second piece!
Well done to all involved and to Philippa, Zac, Finn and Finley who put in lots of effort and made several new friends along the way in this joint venture!

“I am absolutely delighted with the school and staff at Sutton Benger Primary School. My daughter adores school, often asking if she can go in on Saturdays! The curriculum is stimulating and creative, and the home learning engaging and appropriate. Communication with parents is excellent, and the leaders and teachers are always smiling, approachable and available to deal with any queries I might have. Thank you to all of you for your hard work and dedication.” (Parent of a child in Y1, Jan 2015)
