Working together, our Art and DT co-ordinator (Mrs Rees) and our Music co-ordinator (Mrs O'Kane) have led the staff and children in gaining this wonderful achievement. We are very proud of the Arts here at St Augustine's and we will continue to build upon whats the Arts have to offer our pupils, inspiring creativity and opening further creative opportunities.

PAN Arts 2019

This year's Pan-Arts theme is 'We are Warrington'. As a school we used this theme to learn about and research the history of our town, famous landmarks and the people in it. Each class then worked collectively to produce some stunning and carefully planned Art and DT work to contribute to our whole school exhibition. We focused specifically on RAF Burtonwood; producing collage, posters, painting and 3D models to form our display. Please go and see the amazing effort of all our artists by visiting the exhibition at the Gateway.

Art specialist Gill Taylor spent an afternoon working with year 5, based on a Mayan theme. Year 5 learned how to make a rectangular tile with a relief pattern using Mayan sculptures and patterns as a stimulus. Using card, foam, tissue paper and paint, each member of the class produced a magnificant Mayan tile, each unique.

Year 4 Art Workshop

Recently some of our more-able year 4 artists attended a special workshop hosted by St.Benedicts Primary. During the session, our children got to meet and collaborate with other artists their own age, from various schools in Warrington. This workshop gave the children a chance to look at the work of Matisse and be inspired by his piece 'The Snail'. See how they got on...

Christmas Bauble Workshop with the Education Group

This December Mrs Rees and the PTA organised a special treat in the form of a crafty, bauble decorating workshop run by the Education Group. Years 1-6 had a fabulous morning designing and painting their own Christmas bauble that they were able to take home and cherish forever!

Music in Year 2

This term, Year 2 became composers! We used rhythms from a familiar song to compose our own piece of music, then rehearsed and performed it using glockenspiels. Performing in pairs, we had to start and stop at the same time and perform with a good sense of pulse. I think you will agree, they did a fantastic job!
