At Ribbleton Avenue Methodist Junior School our curriculum is underpinned by our Christian Ethos and school values based on the work of John Wesley. Art and Design is a valuable part of our curriculum and is seen as an ongoing and creative process following the moto of doing ‘all the good you can’ and therefore allowing children to develop their own unique talents and faith in their imaginative use of art skills.
We are proud to share with you some of the work completed by our amazing artists.
We are having a real focus on using sketchbooks as a place to be creative and explore our ideas. As well as researching different artists, we test out different styles, media and colour combinations. We evaluate our own work and add annotations and labels to show what we are proud of, what techniques we have used, what worked well and what didn't work so well. Everything we do is part of our creative journey so we don't rub anything out.
4R created this worship tree using black paint outline and fine liners. They practised Zentangles in their sketchbooks before choosing the most effective designs for their leaves. On each leaf is their hopes and dreams for the future.
Year 6 have used their creative design skills to produce informative double page spreads. Some children have also used their research to create amazing projects at home.
We use art to support our learning in many different subjects and often children create their own art projects as part of their homework.
Year 5 and 6 have recently wowed the rest of the school with their double page spreads in Science and History.
