During art lessons the school encourages children to produce creative work, by exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. Children are given the opportunity to work with a wide variety of appropriate media in two and three dimensional form. Children are taught techniques in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and craft design activities.
Children evaluate their own work and analyse creative works of others. The children are given the opportunity to study work of great artists, craft makers and designers and are taught how art has influenced historical and cultural development around the world.
From Years 1-6, children work in their own sketch book. These are used as working documents to record their observations, carry out artst research and use them to review and revisit ideas.
Please follow the 'Primary homework help' link below to access a wide range of information about famous artists. You could use this page to explore and learn about new artists or to aid and develop your focus artist research from school.
Please use the BBC Bitesize links below to access tutorials for art & design skills including; drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles, colour, shape, pencils, pastels and inks, textiles, famous artists and many more to further develop your KS1 and KS2 art & design skills.
We have some fantastic examples of our children's artwork displayed around our school! Please take a look at some of the brilliant display and sketchbook work that the children in our school are creating.
Early Years Foundation Stage
This term, Nursery have worked so hard to paint their favourite toy from the book 'Just Like Jasper'. They had to look very carefully at colours and shapes to make sure we could spot which one they had painted. Our Nursery children have also been looking at how to mix colours and whilst exploring this, enjoyed getting messy and creative by painting their hands to print their mixing journey. As well as this, they've also been busy in their junk modelling area, making rockets, whilst learning about Bonfire Night.
This term, our Reception children have created some wonderfully vibrant space art using chalks, self portraits with paints and have worked hard to listen to instructions to draw and paint the snowmen from their text, 'The Snowman'.
Art & Design: Home Learning
During the spring term, our children have worked exceptionally hard to continue produce outstanding work from our art & design curriculum; both in school and whilst learning from home. Please take a look through some of the wonderful examples from EYFS - Year 6.
