Art

Art contributes greatly to the life of the school. Children are able to express themselves using sketchbooks to produce creative works of art. We currently hold the Artsmark Gold award.  In addition, Lacey Green take great pride in our displays which illustrate our fantastic work. Have a look at these pictures! 

          

How is Art taught at Lacey Green? 

Lacey Green follows the National Curriculum as a basis for planning. 

In EYFS and Key Stage One the children are taught by the class teacher, whereas in Key Stage Two pupils are taught by Mrs Chapman, our Specialist Art Teacher. The lessons cover all aspects of the National Curriculum.

Key Stage One research different artists and compare their work. We also try and mirror artist's work. All work is recorded in their individual sketchbooks. During the Autumn Term, Year 1 are focussing on "Pop Art" while Year 2 are looking at Nature Sculptures and Animal Models. Keep up to date with our website to see our finished pieces. 

       

Each child in Key Stage Two produces an Art Journal. The journals are a visual, and sometimes verbal record of their thoughts, ideas and research. A variety of imaginable style, media and technique is used to help them in their work. During the Autumn Term, pupils have been focussing on the Colour Spectrum.
