Yearly Topic Focus
Autumn Term- Heroes and Villains
This project has a history focus and teaches children about Heroes and Villains from different periods of history, their motives, their beliefs and the ways in which they changed the world.
Spring Term- Gallery
This topic focuses on pupils ability to be innovative, creative and artistic. Pupils will explore and focus on a variety of artwork and artists from different periods of history. There will be a strong emphasis and focus on developing their artistic skills to paint using a variety of materials. Individuals will develop their skills by focusing on creating tone, shading and textures to produce their artwork.
At the end of the project, pupils will take pride in their art work by opening up their own art gallery to showcase and exhibit their work, for parents/guardians.
Summer Term- Off with Her Head
Pupils will travel back in time to the 1500s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history. Pupils will discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour – and even swifter falling of heads!
