Art in Year 5

The teaching of art and design at our school instils an appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts. Year 5 children have certainly enjoyed their curriculum this term – exploring a range of mediums to help them communicate what they see through the elements of colour, texture, tone and pattern. Here are some examples…


Remembrance in Reception

‘We wear poppies because of the soldiers, some of them died, but some didn’t.’

‘We’re thinking about the soldiers who were in the war and died. There are poppy wreaths. A man wrote a poem about the poppy fields and he saw some bright red poppies in a field when they’d finished fighting.’

‘It was scary for the animals in the war’.

Celebrations in Reception

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all of our children and parents who are working so hard at home to complete the challenges we set or coming up with some super learning ideas/activities to keep everyone entertained and motivated at home. You’re doing a great job!

I have sent a ‘Golden Box’ prize out in the post today to somebody who does all the work set, and more!

KC prize for completing all work

Keep going everyone (I know how hard it is with a 13 and 15 year old myself, so I can sympathise!!!)

Thanks again and stay safe,

Mrs Casswell πŸ™‚
