Creativity and imagination are essential in learning. Children at Ashcott have many opportunities to be creative and artistic. They learn specific skills and techniques in a variety of 2D and 3D media and are encouraged to "look more before they draw".

They develop their skills through imitation and imagination in cross-curricular work and by discovering and looking at the work of a range of art and artists.


Children collaborate to create large 3-D sculptures using a range of media.
