Our Brilliant Art Work

Ryedene's curriculum for Art

Since 2012 we have had our very own professional Artist in Residence, Mrs Ingrid Anderson (BA Hons, First Class).

Ingrid teaches the art for our school across KS1 and KS2, developing skills in drawing and painting, printing, sculpture, collage and textiles. Each summer Ingrid organises an exhibition of the beautiful work the children create to showcase their achievements from across the year and organises master classes for those pupils with an identified talent in art and design. Ingrid is also leading us through Artsmark.

Having a professional artist working in school is a great inspiration to pupils to achieve amazing works of art smiley

Back to school!

Our amazing children have been working hard since returning to school.

Welcome back for a brand new year at fabulous Ryedene!

It has been a packed summer, which kicked off with our Summer Exhibition here in school. Then our wonderfully creative children joined forces with children from Greensted Juniors to represent Basildon Council in the Basildon carnival and winning 'Best Float'! To top it all, members of our choir took part in the New Town Sounds event at St. Martin's Church, Basildon, to sing their hearts out - check out our choir page for photos, news and updates. Well done Children, we're so proud of you! wink

Basildon Council press release:

Year 4 have completed all their printing frown

Here are examples of how the pupils used the fabric in different ways to create a different print using the same print block. Some pupils scrunched the fabric, others folded it or creased it. I think you'll agree the results are amazing!

Year 1 are having a fabulous time making collages using all the colours of the seasons. Here are our pictures about summer - January 2019
