Key Stage 1 Arts Project
Key Stage 1 children chose their own painting to use as a stimulus for their art project.
Year 1 focused on building machines like diggers, cranes and tractors and looked at artists who had made machine sculptures. They worked with a visitor from the Bare Toed Dance Company to make a machine dance. They did a drama workshop with a visitor from the Theatre Royal. We learnt to work in a team and move like different types of machines.
Year 2 looked at different types of bridges and made bridge models. They worked with a visitor from the Bare Toed Dance Company to make bridge dance by going over and under. They worked with sculptor Bruce Tuckey from Bill Quay Farm to make large scale model bridges on the field using canes and cable ties. They designed and made T-shirts with bridge motifs using fabric paints.
