ART at Gwladys Street

 

Mrs Blythe is a passionate art subject leader and has introduced the Suffolk Art scheme for teachers to use as a guide to plan their art IPC lessons to ensure children's progression of skills are built on each year with collage, textiles and 3D. Each year group will use these skills through their IPC subjects. Watch out for photographs of the children's work over the year.
