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.

In year 2, we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. We used different techniques of rolling, scrunching and gluing flat tissue paper to create our pictures. We also wanted to add Tudor houses to our pictures, so we used paper and card to cut out and create a collage for the wooden beams and windows.

In Year 3, we have created pictures frames by sawing wood to the correct size and using glue guns to stick them together correctly. We have placed patterned material at the back, but this can be replaced with any picture of our choice.

In Year 6, we have used black card and white chalk to create effective pictures of winter scenes. We were amazed at how detailed our pictures could be, even though we were using only white chalk.
