SJHS News and Events

Our aim at the Sir James Henderson School is to develop and encourage children's natural creativity so that they can become confident and enthusiastic artists.

This is achieved by:
  • Offering children the opportunity to work with a variety media.
  • Teaching the techniques necessary to achieve the best results.
  • Looking at, and learning about, the work of well-known artists.
  • Enabling children to respond to, and evaluate, the work of established artists - and their own work.
  • Encouraging children to express their ideas and feelings in a visual form.
  • Teaching the visual and tactile elements of Art and Design e.g. line, shape, form, tone, pattern, texture and colour.
  • Developing their ability to use a sketchbook as a 'notebook' for their ideas and observations.
  • Introducing the vocabulary necessary to enable children to communicate their ideas effectively.
Artwork produced by the children of Lower School is currently placed on display in classrooms and corridors, making it available for all to see and enjoy.

Art projects may be taught as a separate unit as well as in a cross curricular form, for example, through History (Egyptian Art, the Romans, the Vikings), Geography (African Art, Indian Art) and English (for Book Week each class produced a book cover for the classroom doors as an entrance into an imaginary world.)
