An innovative project designed by the Infant & Junior Schools and Murude Mehmet from the Parental Engagement Team.
This project encourages parents to contribute to the schools’ Curriculum through creative workshops, which will be delivered by the parents who have accessed the art and craft workshops..
Parents complete a five week art course, learning the art of Glass, Silk, Fabric and Mosaic. They were then able to facilitate and transfer their skills to the children.
The parents planned their own lessons for each year group, creating some fabulous works of art with the help of the class teachers and teaching assistants.
Some of the art work the children and parents have produced is displayed in both schools, which includes, Lion King Mosaic Art in the Infant School Reception Area, a Mosaic Chinese New Year Dragon outside the hall, Glass Painting depicting Poppy Artwork for Remembrance Day in the Infants Corridor, Mosaic Art depicting The Solar System in the Year 6 Corridor and Our Local Area in the Main Hall located in the Junior School.
