Each year group completes drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, printing and textile units. Skills are re-visited and built upon as the children progress through the school ensuring continuity and progression throughout the key stage.
Every child has their own art journal. The journals are used to explore ideas and practice new skills. Completed journals show exploratory work as well as photos of 3D pieces, reference notes and collage, printing and textile examples.
When the journals are full to bursting, the children are able to take them home and keep as a record of their achievements.
Whilst meeting lesson objectives, the children are encouraged to approach activities freely in order to encourage confidence, independence and creative flare.
We regularly participate in art related competitions and work alongside established creative organisations.
Can you spot the original artwork in these year five landscape paintings?
Year 5 photography inspired by urban artist Roy's People. His work combines miniature figures, photography and the streets to create a miniature world beneath our feet. What narratives do these photos tell? Are there clues in the titles?
