'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'

Art & DT

We are very lucky to have Mrs Glennon leading Art in Year 1 this term!


We will be exploring many artists and their alternative artistic styles. By the end of this term the children should be able to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space, in the context of creating a mosaic collage landscape. They will also know about the work of a range of artists, and will be describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, in the context of comparing 3 artists.


These are a list of the areas we will be covering this half term:

Monet's Garden, Monet's Cityscapes, Van Gogh Landscapes, Van Gogh's Starry Night, Metzinger's Colourful Landscapes and finally Metzinger's Mosaics!

Below are some of the originals the children will be studying.
