Art & Design: Design & Technology
Art & Design
Art is integrated into our themes. We teach and use a variety of media to draft and produce art work on a range of subjects. We are also developing our curriculum in order to look at the lives of important artists (particularly local ones such as Barbara Hepworth) and study their techniques.
All pupils have their own sketchbooks to practise techniques and produce finished products. These move up through the school with them.
We are very lucky to have a regular volunteer from our local community who is a talented artist and who works with our Year 3 and 4 classes every week.
Design and Technology
Design and Technology is planned into our theme-based approach. Pupils design, make and evaluate, developing their technical knowledge and skills. Cooking and nutrition is an important element of D and T. We want our pupils to understand the elements of healthy nutrition and why it is important to them. We have a dedicated kitchen for pupil use, in which children can mix and cook their food and drink designs.
COMING SOON: DT WHOLE SCHOOL HEALTHY WEEK
Pupils from our school took part in making these beautiful and moving silk paintings. They were displayed in Wakefield Cathedral for Remembrance Day Events and will then be moved to Cathedral Academy.
