This set of resources explores various ideas around Art work reflecting the seasons. It has a Art topic mapping document, a series of two lessons planning sheet, and a powerpoint showing children's work and the idea used in the lessons.
These are three documents, that map out the scope and progression of Art study and practice in the Primary School. They are working documents, and so are subject to change and revision.
They seek to cover all aspects of the subject, and the application should be flexible and creative...
This series of resources includes - Overview planning sheet, Sequence of 4 days planning and a power point of work examples. This work can also be linked to William Morris and the influence he had in Victorian taste and design. This project was researched and carried out by two year four classes, but could easily be translated into any age group. We tried to include as many Art skills as possible so that the children could have an enriched experience over the four day project.
This is a working document to highlight and pinpoint what needs to be done , analysed and provided for the Art topics for the Primary school year. What is needed in one area, will also affect other aspects of the provision.
It is helpful to coordinate that whole vision for the immediate future and ensure excellent provision of Art skills and concepts.
This unit of work lasted 4 week, or a whole day every week. It includes an overall map of the activities and a set of planning for the four weeks. The power point shows what we did and how it all came together at the end in a large display and a collection of handmade books. This unusual topic title, brought up some good opportunities to talk about tragedy through the Artworks, and the effect of design on the daily lives of us as humans.
This is a lesson plan set for a day devoted to Art, in reception class. It is designed to involve parents and allow then to work with their children on a range of Art projects throughout the day.
This is to provide a link between home and school, and to encourage parents to be involved with Art in the work family setting.
These resources can be adapted for any age or ability group. Because of its nature, we cannot directly observe anything in its natural setting. Observation can from pictures, power points, books, You tube films.
The first document Nisan overview of the scheme of work.
The second is a sequence of planning for five days of work around this topic.
The power point has the ideas and output of the Art work we did.
Included here is a format for a pupil response sheet, and some examples of how the children responded to them.
We really enjoyed this topic, as it still has an air of mystery and astounding beauty.
This document seeks to extend the subject of Art into the greater and more prominent place in the Primary curriculum, where it belongs. It uses the NC units of work, which are not bad, and includes other aspects of learning. This plan promotes the learning of aspects of Art, so that children can increase involvement, decisions and creativity, which will them impact on the whole range of the learning experience.
A plan and short text to whet the appetite for personal events, that are ofter richer than fiction. Children will not be short of stories to share about things that have happened to them, and they can turn them into exciting and intriguing yarns!!
Maybe the class can make a book with illustrations, photographs of other paraphernalia.
This power point is aimed at enriching the experiences of 3rd-5th grade children, and help them project their skills to something more challenging. There is of course more than one answer to the algebra statements, and teachers and children can use them as they see fit. I hope this will help"flip the switch" for tired curriculum exercises...
This set of resources is a planning sequence for primary class and a power point of examples of work produced over a project spanning a few weeks. It covers bead making, responses in two-dimensions to African masks and Kente cloth designs.
This is a set of planning frames, for a variety of biographies about a selection of people from past times. The biography text can be used to analyse, deconstruct or extend, to allow children to recognise the structure and sequence of a biography text.
The planning frame can be used to allow the children to research information using a variety of sources, so that they can them write a biography text.
This series of resources is to present to teachers some wider ideas as to what Mathematics and learning actually is. It steps outside the National Curriculum and asks some searching questions about what we are doing and why we are doing it.
