This afternoon in Fabulous Fox class we talked about feelings, our feeling today was ‘worry’… The children had the choice to create a poem or a poster to help others if they feel worried. They wanted to share them with you 😀 . pic.twitter.com/CsxSLNjdGe

Art

Why is the teaching of art important for Roydon's pupils?

Art is important because it encompasses all the developmental domains in child development. Art lends itself to physical development and the enhancement of fine and gross motor skills. For instance, when pupils work with clay, they fine-tune their muscle control in their fingers. All manipulative movements involved in art help develop hand and finger muscles that are needed to properly hold and use a pencil.

Art activities also help our pupils’ social and emotional development. Children learn about themselves and others through art activities. It really helps them build self-esteem. It’s an opportunity for pupils to make a personal statement about their uniqueness through art while allowing them to express emotions. 

Art also enhances our pupils’ cognitive development; Pupils who have studied a wide range of artists and artwork will have an array of ideas to choose from when creating. Art reflects what pupils know about the world and enables them to choose how to translate those ideas and experiences.

Finally, art is important because it allows our pupils to be creative. Each piece of clay manipulated or each painting is individual to each child and should be treated with awe. 

Who will pupils learn about?

Pupils will get to study a wide range of artists from different backgrounds, cultures and epochs.
