Knotty Ash Community Primary School

About This School

Knotty Ash is a warm and welcoming single form entry school with a nursery. We have a deaf resource base for profoundly deaf children who are included for art lessons and events. We have an annual themed arts week and enjoy being involved in collaborative art projects. Y5 used their sketches of garden birds (during Big Schools' Birdwatch week) and the book 'Snowballs' (by Lois Ehlert') as inspiration. They created collages using different techniques including painting with cardboard edges and watercolour washes over oil pastels. During our Asian Arts Week, Y5 also created Ming vases with sgraffito.
