Afternoon of history and art to end the year

Afternoon of history and art to end the year

A fantastic spoken lesson leading into art and (potentially) written reflection after! First part of the lesson is a partner-talk then whole class discussion on the year: what has been the highlights? What has stood out? Scribe it all down then start the slideshow. Using images from the past such as cave painting, the Bayeux tapestry and Japanese woodblock art, the class discuss great works of art and historical artifacts before looking at the artwork of Keith Haring. Using his trademark style, the children then make their own large Bayeux tapestry posters depicting their year.

Leonardo da Vinci - History Technology and Engineering

Leonardo da Vinci - History Technology and Engineering

Da Vinci's designs were spectacularly ahead of his time. If they had actually been built, they might have revolutionised the history of technology.

Much of the focus is also on literacy for example: Engineering: The branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures. The work done by, or the occupation of, an engineer. Invention: The action of inventing something, typically a process or device. Something, typically a process or device, that has been invented.
