Year 2 Curriculum driver
Year 2 have had the curriculum driver of art this term and have being studying Picasso. They began by looking at portraits and how to sketch a face. They then looked in detail at Picasso prints. During their time they went to Nottingham contemporary museum to study different art pieces and created and abstract piece of their own.
In Southglade we have a wide and varied curriculum and through our book based topics. We now teach art in a block as one of our curriculum drivers. This means it will have in depth coverage and the children will be able to create some really exciting projects. We will link our themes into our art work. These can be seen displayed throughout the school and classrooms.
Each year group will look at using a range of mediums and develop their drawing, painting and sculpture. During sessions learning about colour, pattern, texture, line and space. As they move through the school they have a sketch book which records their work and shows the progression
Please see our art progression maps for the skills they will cover and build upon in each year group.
