Art and Design Technology 2018-2019

"Creativity takes courage" - Henri Matisse
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Year 5 are thoroughly enjoying their current science topic, Earth and Space. They have created some beautiful pastel drawings of various scenes in our Solar System. They used their knowledge of the order and size of the planets and facts they learnt in the Explorer Dome to depict these scenes. A great way to develop their skills in blending and mixing colours to create different effects.
