Year 4 – Moore

Henry Spencer Moore was born in Castleford, Yorkshire, England in 1898. He was a teacher and served in the army before going to Leeds School of Art to learn to become a sculptor.

He is famous for sculpting people with hollow spaces in their bodies and for using flowing, abstract shapes. Moore’s career spanned over fifty years – that’s a lot of sculptures!  During World War II, he was commissioned by the War Artists Advisory Committee to make drawings of London’s civilians using Underground stations as bomb shelters.

Curriculum
Our curriculum is bespoke to us and is driven by the fact that we want children to leave the Mill secure in their own identity; familiar with their own community and sense of family; skilled in making connections with friends and the wider world.
Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. We continuously reflect on the best practice there is available in order to have the greatest impact.
Newsletters
Our regular newsletters are one of many ways that we celebrate their amazing successes, hard work and adventures. We always love to share how 'Forever Proud' we are of the children in The Mill community.
