Our Classroom

Term 6 2023 - Ancient Civilisations

AC Picture

This term, we will be studying three art and design topics connected to our wider topic of 'Ancient Civilisations', called 'Islamic Art', 'Statues, Statuettes, and Figurines', and 'Tomb Builders'. 

In 'Islamic Art', the children learn about the features of Islamic art. They make geometric patterns and motifs on paper, with fabric and in clay. They use their learning to create a high relief clay tile, decorated with geometric patterns. In 'Statues, Statuettes, and Figurines', the children learn about the 3-D representation of the human form, including statues, statuettes and figurines. They study examples from ancient civilisations, and use their clay skills to create a Sumer-style figurine. Finally, in 'Tomb Builders', children will learn about simple machines, including wheels, axles, inclined planes, pulleys and levers, exploring how they helped ancient builders to lift and move heavy loads.

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