Art and Design

Our Art vision is to creatively explore ideas through experimentation.


At Cawston Grange Primary School children explore and develop their skills and creativity using a wide range of media. We value the use of sketch books and encourage the importance of experimentation, exploration and pushing ideas in imaginative ways.


We enjoy art projects showing a diverse range of styles, media and cultures, which we display around school.   

Our curriculum is enriched by inviting artists in to school to work with children and staff. We also organise trips for the children to explore art in galleries and museums. 

We like to celebrate Art with a whole school Art Week, where we create large class pieces to display in our ever-growing gallery.

Year 2 Teddy Bear Blankets

We have been incredibly excited about making our blankets. We have explored the differences between Indian and African designs. We have used the skills of Block Printing, Tie Dying, Rubbings and Applique to create out blankets. Finally we used a running stitch to put the blankets together. We think our blankets are fantastic.
