This complete 6 lesson unit comes with an editable medium term plan plus 6 separate individually created lesson packs, each one with its own PowerPoint presentation. Everything you need for a half term's worth of art is here that matches perfectly with a local area study or a nature/woodland/habitat topic. Children will build sculptures, take photographs, paint, use sketchbooks, draw with a variety of mediums and stimuli and use a wide range of materials that are commonly found in schools or easily accessible. There is also a lesson where children get to experiment and create completely original pieces of art from their imagination. Every lesson has cross-curricula elements including: reading comprehension, writing and DT, plus they all come with a reflective self-evaluation sheet, everything is designed to perfectly compliment the new 2014 curriculum and the lessons will work with any age group but are designed for KS2.
