Art and Design

Welcome to our Art Room page. 

My name is Mrs Holland and I am the Art Teacher at Churchfields Primary School.



We are learning 

All of the year groups will be studying aspects of colour theory or work linked to their own class topics this half term. 

Nursery and Reception 

Reception investigate simple finger puppets and create their own scenarios with them. They look at the materials used to make then before going on to create their own for role play linked to their class topics.

Year 1 

Year 1  also investigate puppets and go on to design and create their own hand puppet using simple sewing techniques. Always a favourite unit of work we love seeing what ideas they will be coming up with!


Year 2 

Year 2 practise their drawing skills starting with a challenge to draw themselves as a range of cartoon characters. They experiment with lots of different mark making materials and the results should be lots of fun!

Year 3 

Year 3 are building on their learning from last term when they created their own relief printing blocks using cardboard and string. This term they are going on to design their own impress printing blocks and will then use them to create one and two colour prints.

Year 4 

Year 4 experiment with a new type of sculpture. Inspired by Japanese Gyotaku printing they will be creating their own realistic fish sculptures. We are really excited about this project especially as we plan to use real fish to print with!

Year 5 

Year 5 look at the techniques of screen printing. Widely used for both small and large scale projects, they work in small groups of three to produce a collaborative artwork. Very messy but super fun!


Year 6 

Year 6 investigate and practise using one and two point perspectives in their drawing. A useful technique it helps to create realistic images and links into maths and geometry.

Horse Chestnut  Class 

Horse Chestnut Class  look at artwork created using shadows. This is linked to their class topic of light and dark and we have already had lots of fun creating our own shadow shapes.

Willow Class 

Willow Class  are learning about the Ancient Egyptians in their class topic this term and this gives us a great opportunity to create some Egyptian inspired artwork! We are starting by designing our own sarcophaguses making choices about colour and pattern.

 Design Technology

Our Design and Technology curriculum is taught through our Art and Computing lessons.

In Design and Technology pupils, make and evaluate their work, using their technical knowledge. Pupils will experience working with a range of construction materials, mechanism and structures and will be taught how to consider their most suitable application to make products to solve problems, as well as learning to use tools safely and confidently.

Please see individual class pages for details of this term's topic.


Please do not hesitate to contact me on if you have any concerns or queries.

Thank you for your support.
