Art and Design Discovery

Year 2:

Knowledge, skills and understanding

Exploring and developing ideas

1  Pupils should be taught to:

a record from first-hand observation, experience and imagination, and explore ideas

b ask and answer questions about the starting points for their work, and develop their ideas.

 

Investigating and making art, craft and design

2  Pupils should be taught to:

a investigate the possibilities of a range of materials and processes b try out tools and techniques and apply these to materials and processes, including drawing

c represent observations, ideas and feelings, and design and make images and artefacts.

 

Evaluating and developing work

3  Pupils should be taught to:

a review what they and others have done and say what they think and feel about it

b identify what they might change in their current work or develop in their future work.

 

Knowledge and understanding

4  Pupils should be taught about:

a visual and tactile elements, including colour, pattern and texture, line and tone, shape, form and space

b materials and processes used in making art, craft and design

c differences and similarities in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers in different times and cultures.

The Autumn Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘pattern and line’. Pupils will learn to:

✓        use marks, lines and patterns in an informed way.

✓        develop skills in drawing observed and imagined pictures

✓        use a view finder to observe and recreate marks, lines and patterns in natural and made objects and in the work of artists

✓        make repeat pattern prints, using string blocks based on observed or drawn lines.

The Spring Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘shape, form and space’. Pupils will learn how to:

✓        pinch and pull clay to make real or imagined forms,

✓        make tiles of clay and apply additional pieces using

✓        make simple thumb and finger pots.

In addition they will be given the opportunity to observe and talk about other artists work in three dimensions.

The Autumn Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘colour and tone’. Pupils will learn how to:

✓        recognise colours which harmonise, contrast and which ‘stand out’

✓        apply colour for effect when painting

✓        use tone in a picture to achieve the effect of depth, using torn or cut newspaper to make a monochrome collage.

The Spring Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘texture’. Pupils will learn how to:

✓        select and use different media to express the qualities of texture

✓        translate observed textures into textiles based on natural form, including landscape and architectural detail

✓        use thickened paint to enrich the textural qualities of an image.

Knowledge, skills and understanding

 

Exploring and developing ideas

1  Pupils should be taught to:

a record from experience and imagination, to select and record from first-hand observation and to explore ideas for different purposes

b question and make thoughtful observations about starting points and select ideas to use in their work

c collect visual and other information

to help them develop their ideas, including using a sketchbook.

Investigating and making art, craft and design

2  Pupils should be taught to:

a investigate and combine visual and tactile qualities of materials and processes and to match these qualities to the purpose of the work

b apply their experience of materials and processes, including drawing, developing their control of tools and techniques

c use a variety of methods and approaches to communicate observations, ideas and feelings, and to design and make images and artefacts.

Evaluating and developing work

3  Pupils should be taught to:

a compare ideas, methods and approaches in their own and others’ work and say what they think and feel about them

b adapt their work according to their views and describe how they might develop it further.

Knowledge and understanding

4  Pupils should be taught about:

a visual and tactile elements, including colour, pattern and texture, line and tone, shape, form and space, and how these elements can be combined and organised for different purposes

b materials and processes used in art, craft and design and how these can be matched to ideas and intentions

c the roles & purposes of artists, craftspeople & designers working in different times & cultures.

The Autumn Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘pattern and line’. Pupils will learn to:

✓        make rotated or reflected pattern sin drawings and prints by preparing a printed block

✓        include more detail, and show an increased awareness of proportion in work from observation

✓        show a developing understanding of the expressive qualities of line (e.g. excited, angry, calm) and be able to use it in observed, imagined or remembered drawings.

The Spring Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘shape, form and space’. Pupils will learn how to:

✓        join slabs of clay together

✓        make and use papier-maché

✓        include more detail and show increased awareness of proportion.

The Spring Term Discovery Week focuses on the pupils exploring, investigating and evaluating ‘texture’. Pupils will learn how to demonstrate increased confidence and skills in the use of tactile media by:

using complex techniques in the use of:

✓        clay, e.g. slip decoration, burnishing, incising

✓        textiles, e.g. the overlay of fabrics and appliqué

✓        paper, e.g. quilling, embossing.

The Autumn Term Discovery Week focuses on pupils learning to evaluate. Pupils will have the opportunity to visit different galleries, listen to an artist discuss their work and make evaluations.

The week will culminate I the pupils evaluating their own work form previous years and deciding on a project which they will exhibit in the Summer term.

During the Summer Term the year 6 pupils have the opportunity to follow through with an extended art project.

The pupils have the freedom to use their chosen media, to explore ideas and to create, culminating in a finished piece of work, preceded by exploratory recordings.
