ART/ DT

 

At St Saviour’s, we want our children to love creative arts!

We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and to grow up wanting to be illustrators, graphic designers, fashion designers, curators, architects or printmakers. Our Creative Arts curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be able to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.

Spring Term 2 topic and objectives:

 

DT: Making felt phone cases

 

Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils should be taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of making.

Children select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing], accurately.

They select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities.

 

Practical skills and techniques

  • learn to use a range of tools and equipment safely and appropriately and learn to follow hygiene procedures;
  • independently take exact measurements and mark out, to within 1 millimetre;
  • use a full range of materials and components, including construction materials and kits, textiles, and mechanical components;
  • cut a range of materials with precision and accuracy;
  • shape and score materials with precision and accuracy;
  • assemble, join and combine materials and components with accuracy;
