Art & DT

At Sudbury Primary School, Art & DT is taught as a block on specific Art & DT days which are planned and delivered by class teachers.

 

Art is a practical, and creative subject. Through their active participation, pupils learn to explore their imagination, generate ideas, acquire skills and apply judgement. They learn about the materials and techniques they use and about the world of art, craft and design, recognising the achievements of artists, designers and craftspeople from many different times and cultures.

 

Art is a subject that gives pupils the opportunity to express ideas, attitudes and values. It is a great means of communication and it develops and encourages critical and creative thinking. As such, it lends itself readily to enriching, extending and consolidating learning in a variety of curriculum contexts. The subject often contributes to cross-curricular school themes and to various events and activities in the school calendar.

 

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

Autumn 1 Art & DT Day

Nursery

We used paint and glitter to creatively decorate some butterflies which are now hanging beautifully in our classroom. 

Reception

We have been learning about Diversity in Reception. We used paint to create self-portraits to celebrate our differences. 

Year 1

We studied Yayoi Kusama and drew a portrait of her using the medium of Crayons. Then we found out that she had a love for pumpkins. We first created a wash with watercolours on a crayon based pattern. Then we used poster paint to paint our pumpkin. Lastly, we placed it all together.

Year 2

We learnt about Piet Mondrian, who developed his own unique style using black lines and only a few primary colours to create pictures. First, we used coloured pencils to create our patterns. Then, we used different coloured card and paper to create our pieces of art work.

Year 3

We learnt about The Benin Kingdom during Art Day and created animal collages. Animals such as crocodiles and leopards appear many times in the art of Benin. They are used as symbols to demonstrate the power of their king, the Oba. We used different coloured and textured paper to create collages of our chosen animals. First, we had to cut out the outline of the animal, then trace around it on our chosen coloured paper, cut it out again and then add details. 

Year 4

We have been learning about the Benin Empire. We explored their art work and how Benin bronzes were made. We decided to try to make our own, and this is how they turned out. We used clay and metallic paint to give it a bronzed look. We also used beads to add a 3D effect. We used clay sculpting tools to carve our designs into the clay plaques. 

Year 5

In English, we have been learning about the Stone Age. We created artwork using chalk pastels to replicate some of the symbols and scenes we have seen in cave paintings.

Year 6

We have been learning about how to shade using one colour and looking at shade and tone. First, we practised creating different shades of grey using our pencils. Then, we spent some time zooming in to the beak of a bird and how we can use our shading skills to recreate it. 

Rainbow Rooms

We have been learning about ourselves and our bodies. We drew our eyes, noses, mouths and other features on our faces and used paint to make hand prints.
