RE / ART Day 2022

“We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us.” Today the children thought about this quote and what it meant to them. We had class discussions about race, culture, equality, diversity and religion and how it unites us. The children then had free reign to create their own piece of art work to show what this quote meant to them. We have a large display at our new school entrance of some of the amazing work we have created. 

Friedensreich Hundertwasser Odd Socks Day!

Children in Key Stage One have been learning all about the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser believed clothing should be unique to an individual and often wore mismatched socks! The children had an odd sock day and showcased their Hundertwasser inspired art work. 

Vision

Purpose of Study

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Pupils should be able to think critically and develop a rigorous understanding of art and design. They should know how art and design reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.  

 

Who is the Frenchwood Artist?

The Frenchwood Artist can evaluate and analyse other artists’ work (including those that have shaped and influenced Britain and the wider world) and can use this to develop their own personal style. They can confidently critique art and design works using appropriate artistic language and understand the cultural and historical development of different art forms. The Frenchwood Artist is proficient in using a wide range of media and materials to create their own artwork and can master a range of skills and techniques from process to product.  

 

Concentric Frenchwood Rationale

purposeful, engaging learning opportunities encourage artistic development;

  • objectives across all strands revisited and embedded within and across year groups and key stages to ensure cumulative fluency;
  • repeated exposure to a wide range of media and materials to allow for mastery o techniques over time;
