Since returning to school in September following partial school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been working hard to identify the areas of learning individual pupils may need to catch up on. As always, we are making core subjects the priority - particularly the basic skills of numeracy and literacy. However here at Wombwell Park Street, we are passionate about our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum offer and feel now more than ever pupils need the opportunity to engage in a wide range of learning opportunities. Children will be accessing the full range of curriculum subjects this year. During the autumn and spring term subject leaders will be prioritising the key learning objectives and vocabulary to be covered in each subject. Class teachers will plan a range of integrated projects and lessons to ensure that all subjects are covered each term although there may be some reduction in frequency and objectives in the foundation subjects to allow pupils to catch up missed learning in the core subjects. By no later than summer term 2021 we are planning to be teaching the full range of subjects in their entirety as detailed in our comprehensive subject overviews. If you wish to discuss our current curriculum provision further do not hesitate to contact school and Mrs Longden Deputy Head can provide further information. Should you need any further information relating to provision in Art, Miss Taylor and Mrs Longden will be happy to answer any questions.
Here is some of the art work children have been doing in school with Mrs Fitchett. We all love a bit of positivity so we HAD to post it!
What is an art journal?
An art journal, is a visual diary that combines elements of writing, drawing, painting and collage. There are really no rules in art journaling, which means it’s a great place to express your personality and feelings. Below, are some ideas that you could include in your art journal. You can create your art journal using a plain paper notebook, alternatively you can use plain paper and staple these together.
Parents- If you would like to share any of your child’s artwork please share this through Twitter or via the school email.
All websites/videos will need careful monitoring from parents due to some topic content and links to other sites, so please be mindful of this.
