Our current topic is:

This project has an art focus and explores the artwork of a variety

of artists from different periods of history and develops children’s

painting skills using a range of materials. At the heart of this

project children learn how to write classically structured poetry

and develop additional skills in the use of figurative language and

descriptive vocabulary.

In the Innovate Stage children apply their skills and understanding

by opening their own art gallery to exhibit their work on a local

and national scale.

In this project the children will learn:

• How the work of various artists throughout history has been

used to express their views, and how artists’ work reflected the

times they lived in;

• How artists use various skills to work with different media;

• How art and poetry can be used to express the views of the

artist or poet;

• How to write a poem on a theme using figurative and

expressive language;

• How to organise and display of artwork;

• How to use ICT to find information, display information and

create art;

• How to use art and poetry to express feelings and opinions.
