Drawing : Vincent Van GoghArt - Spring
Drawing : Vincent Van Gogh
Through exploring the beauty of the work of Vincent Gogh, children develop confidence appreciating and critiquing artistic works using technical vocabulary. Drawing inspiration from Van Gogh, they develop their mark-making skills with more precision, and use these to design their own work of art, going through the process of drafting, evaluating and redrafting, before exhibiting it on display.
Why are the Ancient Egyptians so famous?History - Summer
Why are the Ancient Egyptians so famous?
Becoming historians for the term, children explore the significance of the Ancient Egyptians, by investigating what they invented and how they lived their lives. Children use primary and secondary sources to investigate how the Egyptians lived and how that compares with today, appreciating the beauty and significance of these incredible artefacts. This learning will go towards a time capsule they will create themselves, including informative letters for future children to learn about the Egyptians.
Textile DesignersDesign & Technology
In this project, the children will design and make their own puppet. They will be given the opportunity to explore multiple different puppets through a range of mediums, encouraging them to draw inspiration from what they have seen. They will also be introduced to a famous textile designer giving them an insight into how they have been so successful in their field. In addition to this, the children will design, make, and evaluate their design, learning a range of stitching and textile techniques in the process.
