Arts Award in Year 1

Year 1 are busy working towards their Arts Award Discover award. As part of this they have been discovering what ‘the arts’ are and where they can participate in arts events within our local area. They have also been studying sculpture and learning about The Angel of the North and the artist Antony Gormley. Part of the award involves participating in an arts event so we visited the Shipley Art Gallery on our doorstep last week to take part in the Making An Angel workshop. It was great fun and we saw a replica of the actual Angel sculpture. The children made sculptures with their bodies, and worked in pairs and individually to create angel sculptures. Have a look at our work, and remember the art gallery is a great place to visit during the long summer holiday and often have free workshops for children!
