Newton Primary School

Rooted in love and care


Art, for the majority of children, is a natural form of expression and a source of great pleasure. We aim to increase the child’s confidence and competence alongside an appreciation of all forms of art. We plan our work to enable children to enjoy the experience of art whilst producing work of a high quality.


Children investigate and communicate their ideas using a variety of different media: pencil, charcoal, paint, collage, inks, textiles and clay. Our art programme will develop the essential skills of eye hand co-ordination, observation and perseverance. By appreciating other children’s work as well as that of famous artists, we aim to develop an understanding of artistic characteristics.
