Art - Remote Learning

Across all the technology department a uniform approach to student’s work has been put in place as if students were in school. Students are still expected to write the date, title and instead of classwork they are writing home learning tasks. R&R tasks also continue to take place in the lessons to provide this consistent approach to learning.

High expectations of students’ work are still expected which are consistent with the in-school experience.

Work is marked in a timely manner and feedback is given to student to improve on. Time is given for students to make these improvements and re-submit their work.

When planning lessons’ teachers look at the scheme of work for the year and ensure that the topics which are covered are viable and represent the learning which would have been covered. As a department we aim to offer a variety of lessons to keep the learning light and differentiated for the pupils for example live lessons via team, voice over PPTs, videos and independent work sheets, online platforms e.g. Seneca.

KS3 Art

The Art curriculum continues to be a creative, enjoyable subject for the students to engage in during the remote learning set-up. The focus remains on covering the key elements of art all students need to explore during this time in KS3. Although the use of usual materials and processes is not possible, new and exciting ways to access the subject have been put in place. Students have been and will continue to use the tools that are available to them to explore core components of the subject such as influential artists, practical artistic techniques and evaluate outcomes through self-evaluation tasks. This continued development will ensure all students in KS3 will have the knowledge needed to succeed and transitions comfortably into KS4.

KS4 Art

Art students in Y11 have begun to develop their ideas for the sketch book by using this time at home to collect primary images which are linked to their chosen art theme. To help support students at home art resource packs have been offered to students so they can still continue to develop their knowledge and skills for using different mediums.
