At Pleasant Street Primary School, we want our children to develop a love of art, craft and design! We want them to have no limits in their future ambitions of wanting to be illustrators, graphic designers, fashion designers, curators, architects or printmakers.

Our Art curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.

We want to equip our children with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the Art and Design National Curriculum but to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. We want our children to use the local area as inspiration, to learn from other cultures and to respect diversity.

RE: Our Special World🌎

19-06-2024

This term reception is learning about “what makes our world special?” in RE, the children in reception have explored natural resources and describing them with this classmates. The children, explained what they liked and did not like about the natural resources, some of the children explained that they liked the stones because they felt smooth or the mushroom because it felt furry.

The children had so much fun exploring the natural objects from around our garden, we collected some of the objects and brought them inside to create beautiful sun catchers, we used recycled plates, sticky back plastic and our natural objects. Then the children loved decorating them to make them sparkly and beautiful.

Computing 💻

Reception took a visit to our lovely computer room this week, the children were so sensible at finding a laptop, opening the screen and turning on the power button. The children had a go at moving the mouse on the keyboard. Reception then had a practice of using the mouse to make some art on the app ‘paint’, the children practiced clicking the button and using the trackpad to draw, it was a bit tricky but they had fun learning how to use the computer.
