As I'm still covering a colleague on long term sick leave it's difficult to have as much of an influence on art across the school as I would like. I've given out lesson plans/notes to each year group and try to suggest ideas that they can easily implement.
Y2 are currently looking at their local environment and we've already sketched the local town. To this end I've tried to sneak art into their maths curriculum and have created the good old standby of a drawing that has to coloured according to a key. Different colours have different values (white=15, blue=10 etc.) They look at a section, work out the sum and then colour it in accordingly. Et voila - a stylised, coloured representation of the town.
