Sky Arts Week with Sam Jones

This year we completed a whole school art project as part of Sky Arts Week.  Local artist, Sam Jones, worked with each class to produce a unique piece of art with varied mediums linked to the theme of ‘Identity’.

Our Sketchbook Journey – Raising the profile of drawing and sketching

SISK Project

All the children in school have completed work linked closely to a project that is being completed by the contractors John Sisk & Son in the local community.  The design and build contract, gained through the YORCivil framework, includes the construction of a new road bridge and footbridge over the East Coast Main Line, 2km of single carriageway road including separated cycle and pedestrian provisions, a rail spur to the National Railway Museum, and earthworks and utility works site wide.

The children were tasked to produce a piece of artwork linked to:

  • what York could look like in the future in their eyes
  • their local community
  • local York landmarks

A variety of work was produced and SISK will be displaying the work in their meeting rooms and on large boards to be fixed to their fencing around the site works.
