Nursery School

The Sainsbury's Centre

Each year we work with The Sainsbury's Centre on a unique art project. This begins with a visit to the centre to view an exhibition. We then have regular visits from artists and members of the Sainsbury's Centre Education team, who work with our children throughout the year to produce their own work. Then, in the summer, the children's artwork is put on display at the Sainsbury's Centre which we take the children to go and see!

We are excited to announce a new project in partnership with the Sainsbury Centre Education Team, Magic Acorns and Badger Class. 


The children in Badger Class began their half termly visits to the gallery in December 2023. The first visit was an opportunity for the children, with support of their parents and staff, to develop their confidence in exploring the space, identify objects within the main gallery which spark their interest and share their thinking. 


Over the next two terms staff will be working closely with colleagues from the gallery and Magic Acorns, to develop the project which will focus on developing language through the medium of music and dance. 

Storytelling 2021-22

We are very excited to announce our latest collaboration with the education team at the Sainsbury Centre, UEA. The project will focus on storytelling and will offer children the opportunity to develop their own oral stories, have these scribed, create them in different media and see them brought to life!

Watch this space for updates!

Abundance 2019/20

We took our children to see the Magdalene Odundo exhibition. They saw containers, jugs and vases of all different shapes and sizes: some of them were bigger than the children! But the highlight of the visit were to stunning hanging glasses which the children thought looked like a big wave.

Later in the year, Lawrence, Rach and Georgie came to see us every week. We has been working hard to collect hundreds of bottles, which the children used in their art. They filled them with different coloured paints, made them into instruments by filling them with different foods, tied them to string that stretched across our courtyard to make their own sculptures , and much more.

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus lockdown measures, we weren't able to finish our project as we normally would have done. But Rach and Lawrence kept in touch with the children via Zoom and continued to provide us with activity ideas to do in class and at home.




Hands Find Form 2018/19

During the Hands Find Form project the children explored a range of materials as they channeled their inner animals with face paints, singing and role-play! They created their own animals using clay, sticks, feathers and different materials. Then they got messy to make some animal food using papier-mache and paints. Their work over the year culminated in a special exhibition at the Sainsbury's Centre which was on display to the public alongside pieces from professional artists and even some which were thousands of years old!
