Huntingtower Academy showcased students’ artwork at an after-school exhibition.

The primary school introduced peer critique into the school system via teaching and learning to give the children the opportunity to improve their work.

Youngsters created multiple drafts and listened to the helpful, kind advice given to them by their peers, teachers and parents. Students encouraged each other to make good progress by giving others specific advice on how to improve.

Every class at Huntingtower drew their class animal and their work was presented at the after-school show, which parents, students and friends of the school were invited to.

Art exhibition co-ordinator Laura Giles said: “The event was a huge success and both staff and children have thoroughly enjoyed using the peer critique process. We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from people that visited.”

One parent said: “What a lovely atmosphere there was in school, there was a real buzz and it was good to see pupils so proud of their work. Our academy should showcase work more often.”
