Our topic for Summer 2 will be 'London's Burning!'. 


In Art - Our focus will be Expressive Painting and our question will be How can we explore colour using a variety of mark marking tools?

The key skills will be:

Pupils become familiar with creating drawings using their whole body, whilst experiencing a range of drawing materials.

Pupils discover an artist and will demonstrate their understanding of the artist’s work by responding through a making challenge and peer discussion.

Pupils consolidate their understanding of how they can make spiral drawings using their whole bodies by making “snail drawings”. Pupils push exploration of different qualities of line, colour blending, and mark making using chalk and oil pastels.

Pupils become familiar with what a sketchbook can be used for. They will make or personalise their own sketchbooks, demonstrating that they have ownership of their sketchbook and understand that it is a platform for personal creative risk taking.

Pupils become familiar with the idea that they can make drawings through observation. Pupils show an understanding of what a continuous line drawing is and have had the opportunity to experiment with scale, line and materials.

Pupils reflect on their drawings over the half term, sharing what they like and what they would like to try again through peer discussion.
