At the beginning of the year childrens’ art is based on the theme ‘Me’. Children decorate their name, their handprint, their face and their birthday balloon. During the year art is linked to seasonal events i.e. Hallowe’en, Christmas, Easter. Art is also integrated with the curriculum i.e. Religion, S.P.H.E. , Nursery Rhymes & S.E.S.E. Children work with clay, learn to cut and construct and work with fabric & fibre.
Alot of art work throughout the year is curriculum based and corresponds with special events in Religion such as Our New Bishop and Our Parish. Other themes such as Seasons and Friendship are also channeled through childrens’ art work.
First Class art consists of lots of colour through painting and colouring. Also the use of different materials and fabrics can be seen in the pictures below of the artwork carried out all year.
2nd Class pupils do artwork throughout the year which is mostly based on the Sacrament of Holy Communion along with other strands in the curriculum such as Finger Painting, Mosaiques & Step by Step Drawing.

6th Class Art Projects
A visiting artist has recently painted a beautiful mural on one of the school walls. Each child got to put their own hand print on the mural which they really enjoyed and will be there for them in years to come if they return to visit our school. Below are some photos of the murals that have been painted around our school grounds. These murals help make our school look very bright and the children have been involved in alot of the paintings from painting to making hand prints.
