We are Artists

The National Curriculum for Art and Design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work
  • Explore their ideas and record their experiences
  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.


Below you will find information and documentation on how we at Racemeadow Primary Academy, teach our pupils to be great artists who are proud of their work.

Sculpture in Year 2

In our ‘Around the World with Paddington Bear’ mini mission, we studied the work of sculptor Henry Moore before creating our own sculptures of Peruvian mountains. We looked at photos of mountains and sketched out our designs first then used clay to create our final sculptures. 

Year 6 have been looking at the work of Brian Selznick in Wonderstruck. They, mastered their sketching and drawing techniques and created portraits of Rose or Ben ensuring their work reflected the techniques of Brian Selznick.

The children have been very busy painting these giant nutcrackers to be displayed on the bollards in Long Street over the Christmas period. I’m sure you’ll agree, they will really brighten up the town.

Each class has created a Christmas work of art for the Dicken’s art competition. All the pieces will be displayed on the windows of Atherstone Memorial Hall,  throughout the event, for you to view.
