Our Classroom


Term 6 2024 - 'Expression', 'Architecture', and 'Mixed Media'


This term, we will be studying some Art and Design Technology topics, the first of which is called 'Expression'. This project teaches children about the Expressionist art movement and the 'Father of Expressionism', Edvard Munch. They explore different ways to portray feelings and emotions in art to create an imaginative self-portrait. Following on from this will be a DT topic, called 'Architecture'. This project teaches children about how architectural style and technology has developed over time and then use this knowledge to design a building with specific features. Our final topic is called 'Mixed Media'. This project teaches children about paper crafts, papermaking and collage techniques, including paper, fabric, mixed media and photo collage. They use their learning to create a final piece of small-scale, mixed media collage.

Below, a copy of the knowledge organiser for each topic is available to download in the document list.
