Year 6 have had the wonderful opportunity to work more closely over the past term with Ms Charlie, our art specialist.
Although Art may not immediately jump out as a key subject within our curriculum framework, it is incredibly important as a means of expressing oneself; which we do not have the chance to do often. Having a dedicated art teacher gives the pupils at BIS, and in particular those in Year 6, a more focussed experience than would be available with a classroom based activity with non-specialist teachers. This is very important in preparation for their transition into Year 7 where they will have Art on a weekly basis, and with a professional art teacher.
Over the last term in Year 6, pupils have had experience using abstract styles such as collage and junk art. An example of which can be seen hanging from the ceiling in the Milepost 3 stairwell. In this coming term, we will have the opportunity to look at screen printing and direct line perspective drawing. We would like to thank Ms Charlie for the dedication shown towards her subject and the inspiration offered to our pupils. All lessons are looked forward to with great anticipation. Hopefully, the remainder of the year will provide us with the chance to bring some of our work home to show off our new skills.
