Art and Design

Welcome to our Art Room page. 

My name is Mrs Holland and I am the Art Teacher at Churchfields Primary School.

Autumn 2021

Hello everyone!  It is lovely to be back at school and I am looking forward to working with the children as we start to explore the world of art together again!  Our exciting news is that we have a new art room!!  This is located in the room used by Holly class for the last two years.  It means we have a bigger space to work in, an enclosed outside area for even more exciting art activities and extra sinks to clear up in! 


We are learning

We will be starting our year with colour theory work with each year group investigating colours and how they work together in a variety of different ways. 

Reception will be looking at primary colours and how they create secondary colours.

Year 1 will be looking at complementary colours and their use

Year 2 will be looking at colour families and cool and warm colours

Year 3 will use primary and secondary to make tertiary colours

Year 4 will be creating their own grey scale.

Year 5 will be using colours to create 3D artworks

Year 6 will be creating a range of tints and shades from a limited palette.

Acer will be colour mixing and using different mark making materials

Ash will be colour mixing and making tints and shades

This is going to be followed by…wait for it….Christmas Cards!!  A little early perhaps but we are again going to be running our annual Christmas Card fundraising project.  This allows the children to create a design which can then be transformed into professional looking Christmas cards/tags/mugs/tea towels or bags complete with your child’s name and school.  Each year more schools take part so it is good to get it done early so the orders are completed before the Christmas rush!  There will be more details very soon so please keep an eye out for them.

 Design Technology

Our Design and Technology curriculum is taught through our Art, Computing lessons and by the class teachers.

In Design and Technology pupils, make and evaluate their work, using their technical knowledge. Pupils will experience working with a range of construction materials, mechanism and structures and will be taught how to consider their most suitable application to make products to solve problems, as well as learning to use tools safely and confidently.
