At Ribbleton Avenue Methodist Junior School our curriculum is underpinned by our Christian Ethos and school values based on the work of John Wesley. Art and Design is a valuable part of our curriculum and is seen as an ongoing and creative process following the moto of doing ‘all the good you can’ and therefore allowing children to develop their own unique talents and faith in their imaginative use of art skills. 


We are proud to share with you some of the work completed by our amazing artists. 


Sketchbook work

We are having a real focus on using sketchbooks as a place to be creative and explore our ideas. As well as researching different artists, we test out different styles, media and colour combinations. We evaluate our own work and add annotations and labels to show what we are proud of, what techniques we have used, what worked well and what didn't work so well. Everything we do is part of our creative journey so we don't rub anything out. We also like to do “gallery walks” to appreciate our friend’s work and to be inspired by others.

Displays in school

Royal Mail Stamp Design Competition

We have been inspired by the heroes who have helped people and communities throughout the Coronovirus Pandemic. We took part in the Royal Mail stamp design competition and wowed everyone with our designs. Our hard work meant that we were part of a Guinness World Record! 

Zentangle Worship Tree

4R created this worship tree using black paint outline and fine liners. They practised Zentangles in their sketchbooks before choosing the most effective designs for their leaves. On each leaf is their hopes and dreams for the future. 

Year 6 mindfulness art

Year 6 enjoyed using mixed media and following a process to create an effective final piece. Creating art for pure enjoyment is a great way to calm our minds and look after our mental well-being.

Year 6 Titanic

Year 6 have used their creative design skills to produce informative double page spreads. Some children have also used their research to create amazing projects at home. 

Using art in other subjects

We use art to support our learning in many different subjects and often children create their own art projects as part of their homework. 

Year 5 and 6 have recently wowed the rest of the school with their double page spreads in Science and History.
