Year 3 – Mondrian

Piet Mondrian is a Dutch artist known for making paintings that are abstract. Art that is abstract does not show things that are recognisable such as people, objects or landscapes, and instead artists use colours, shapes and textures to achieve their effect. Plus, did you know Mondrian was passionate about dancing? It is said that he disliked slow traditional dances like the Tango, but enjoyed high energy, fast dancing styles!

When Mondrian made his paintings, he would always mix his own colours, never using the paint directly out of a tube. In his work, you will see that he often works with primary colours, red yellow and blue, like in the piece above.

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.
