Art at Flockton

Art is an integral part of our curriculum and is used as a visual communication tool.  We provide our pupils with a wide range of experiences in the Arts such as: Performing Arts, Music, Singing, Print, Painting, Sculpture, Photography & Design.  Our Christian vision of Rooted in the Community, Branching into the Future,  underpins the work we do with Church, parents and local artists.  We also run an Art Afterschool Club.

Our spiritual journey in Art


Festival of Light

 Elder Class created fantastic 3D lanterns for the Festival of light at the National Coal Mining Museum.  The children worked alongside staff from the National Coal Mining Museum to create the 3D art works.  They were then place in the art installation.  Pupils then had the opportunity to return with their parents to take part in the festival parade. 


"The students at Flockton school were enthusiastic, responded positively to a challenge and worked well as a team. The Miners Lamps that they created were enjoyed by the public at our annual lantern parade". Amy Boothroyd - National Coal Mining Museum. 



Sycamore Class working with local artist Chloe Williams from Children's Art School.

They explored the concept of Light and Dark with charcoals and rubbers to create different tones.  The children loved working with an Artist in school and working on large scale collaborative pieces. 


Year 1 painting with natural materials and coffee

The Year 1 children did some fantastic pictures using coffee and homemade brushes.  They did this during thier outdoor learning session with Mrs Morris.  Don't they look amazing!

After school Art Club 

The children's art club created some fantastic 3D masks using pastels, crayons, marker and card. We used collaging techniques and layering to create a 3D feel to the masks.
