Year 3 – Hokusai

Katsushika Hokusai born in October 1760, was a Japanese painter and printmaker. He is most famous for his series of prints called “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji”.  His most famous piece among these is  The Great Wave Off Kanagawa. Hokusai’s seemingly timeless images are almost 200 years old.

Hokusai was born in Edo (now called Tokyo), Japan. In 1778, he was apprenticed at the art studio of Katsukawa Shunsho. During his life, Hokusai produced tens of thousands of prints, paintings, and illustrations. Hokusai’s images were usually taken from the Japanese countryside, its people and its legends.

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.
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.
