Royal Manchester Children's Hospital

by Mrs Ridings

This half term I ran an after-school Art and Design club for our Key Stage 2 pupils. Children practised using a range of techniques to create artwork for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. 

This week, some of the pupils went to the hospital to display their artwork in the children's cardiology ward. They also got to meet the nurses, hospital playworkers and doctors who work there.

Skill Progression in Painting

by Mrs Ridings

Our staff meeting this week was focused on 'skill progression in painting'. Staff discovered different methods using watercolours and ready mixed paints. We looked at a variety of artists and how we can apply this in our classrooms.
We can't wait to show the children what we have learnt!
