At St Matthew’s CE Primary Academy, we believe that Art contributes to the emotional and creative development of our children. Art will enable pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to express their individual interests and ideas. The National Curriculum states that Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. We aim to make Art engaging, inspiring and challenging to equip children with the knowledge and skills needed to invent and create their own Artwork. We also aim to create critical thinkers where children understand how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Islamic Art - Year 5

This half term Year 5 have been studying architecture and geometric shapes in their art unit. They decided to observe Islamic buildings and created some sketches based upon them. 



The children moved on from this to observe the work of Hundertwasser and create and design a palace for a sultan based upon his style of work.
