Art, Design and Technology (ADT)
At Berkeley Primary School we encourage children to express themselves through art and design technology lessons. Cross-curricular links are made to different areas of the curriculum, for example: the use of 3D medium through papier mache to create Year 6’s interpretation of a Native American totem pole, whilst Year 1 create watercolour paintings of ships using a range of paintbrushes - making links to their ‘Explorers’ topic. We work to ensure that children are confident artists who take pride in their work, using technical language to describe, analyse and evaluate pieces of artwork. Recently, every child had the chance to have their piece of artwork mounted and displayed in a gallery setting. This was an extremely exciting opportunity as their work was displayed for the school, parents and community to view.
