Art and DT

We link our Art and DT to our Topic lessons as well as teaching discrete Art lessons and also having an Art based themed week. This links to our milestones atttached below.

For example, our children recently designed and made castles in KS1, have looked at how Henry VIII was portrayed by artists such as Holbein, have studied Space Art and have made fossils out of clay and in Year Three Four they recreated a full size model of the digestive system using a range of materials.  We have recently completed an Arts Week based on the Platinum Jubilee and the children studied different artists and created artwork of Queen Elizabeth II in these styles. 

A lot of our topics also allow the children to use their design and creative knowledge to showcase their learning from construction, to making their role play areas, to creating games to illustrate a scientific concept as well (e.g. for magnets a board game was made and designed).
