Art Competition Success!



Good morning,


I am writing to congratulate Ewan Welsh in his fantastic drawing for the Dream Treehouse Competition! We had many fantastic entries this year and it was very tough to pick the top three. We wanted to do something very special with Ewans’s as he just missed out on third place but it was too good not to have a prize. Therefore we would love to give Ewan a £50 voucher still but also use his drawing for our Christmas cards 2017!


Ewan’s hard effort has also meant that his school also receives £100 too!


We would love to be able to have a photo for the prize giving to both him and his school so we would need permission from a parent or guardian for this.


Congratulations again and I look forward to hearing from you.


Kind regards,





Francesca Wright  | Marketing Assistant

Art and design 

 Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. We aim to provide a high-quality art and design education which engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they are able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They  also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.


Our art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.


Art and design – key stages 1 and 2 

Key stage 1 Pupils are taught:

  • to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products
  • to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination
  • to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space
  • about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

Key stage 2 Pupils are taught:

  • to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
  • Pupils are taught:
  •  to create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas, these sketch books stay with the child as they move up from years 3 to 6
  • to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]
  • about great artists, architects and designers in history.
