Art Week 2019

Our 2019 Art Week was based around the theme of Reuse Reduce Recycle.  The children's enthusiasm for this issue was immense and whilst learning about the plight of the world's oceans and that plastic is not necessarily always fantastic, they created some stunning artwork - all from recycled materials.  During the Art Week we also turned our school hall into an Art Gallery exhibiting a piece of recycled artwork from every child in the school.

Art

At Stewart Fleming, we place great importance on children’s understanding of art. Children learn about its place in history, about how it features in our and other people’s cultures and they learn how to produce artwork using different skills and media.

During weekly art sessions, children have the opportunity to observe, discuss and create, there is also time for them to evaluate their own and other pupils’ work.  Lessons are structured around the children’s half-termly IPC topic and reflect and build upon what they are learning in their other lessons. Children create individually, in partners and collaboratively and they sculpt, collage, draw - using a wide range of media - or paint with poster paints, watercolours, acrylics, fabric paints and for some topics we even make our own paint from natural resources!

Children at Stewart Fleming have great enthusiasm during art lessons, this is evident in the fantastic artwork that they produce, much of which goes on display in school.

Design Technology

Stewart Fleming pupils love DT!  All year groups participate in at least three DT projects per year.  This includes a sewing project, a modelling project and a food technology project. Part of the DT process is to plan in detail, create and then carefully evaluate. Children are taught these valuable skills from Year 1 onwards.

Throughout the school year, art and DT clubs are held after school and at lunchtime for different year groups. Details of these can be found on the “Extra-Curricular Clubs” page.
