Art is an important aspect of learning and can come in many forms. These may include forms of expression through dancing and dressing up or drawing and making 3D models.

All of the early year’s teachers incorporate art into their everyday activities where they will have opportunities to; experiment with colours and marks, mix colours and observe how they can be changed, begin to be interested in and describe the texture of things, manipulate materials, use a variety of different media to create different effects and use tools for a purpose. In early years it come under the curriculum area ‘Expressive Arts and Design.


This year F3 received specialist art lessons each week which allowed them to learn new techniques and explore their creativity in even more depth. Some activities had a story book that went alongside the teaching. One of the first books they used was called ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds. It encouraged the children to try their best and that all the marks that they make are valued however big or small. The teacher in the story says ‘Just make a mark and see where it takes you.’ You can watch this video read aloud in the link below…

From this video the children learned how to use the water colour paints and designed a variety of their own dots mixing the paints with the water. The following week they went on to follow a line and made pictures with lots of different squiggly lines. This led on to some Kandinsky geometric shape work which they added to their lines.

Other activities involved dry clay and plasticine linked to a variety of Eric Carle books. They learnt how to shape, mold and manipulate the materials to achieve a planned effect. Some children copied the teachers example but in the second session they all started to create their own animals and used their imaginations to make colour sea horses, fish, snails and jellyfish.

Over the year the children got to experience a variety of media and learnt the skills needed to create their art work well. They were shown how to use the correct tools safely and correctly and gained the confidence to be able to recreate these activities and designs back in the classroom.
