SCULPTURE and ceramics are just two of the skills pupils at Roysia School have been getting to grips with during the school's art week.

Art co-ordinator Anne ­Thompson, said: "We do art week every year, and try to get a different artist in every day to work with each year group.

"The children get a lot out of it, and the activities can usually be fitted in around other areas of the curriculum.

"Year 8 will be doing sculpture, while Year 7 have ceramics, and Year 6 print making."

On Tuesday Jane Bower from Artists in Schools came to Roysia to work with two Year 5 classes on a project which saw them produce hardback books.

She said: "We spent the first part of the lesson talking about what a book is, and then went on to ­discuss different types of books.

"Then I asked the children to pick a theme and design a book which reflected that theme."

Mrs Thompson said: "The ­children will be using the books for a writing project later in the term.
