Nurturing Achievement: Growing and learning together

Welcome to Battyeford CE (VC) Primary

Expectations for pupils’ behaviour and conduct are consistently high.Lessons are focused and this is reflected in pupils’ good attitudes to learning. Pupils are proud of their school and are courteous and confident to engage in conversation. They listen well to adults and their peers, and show respect for the views of others. Attainment at the end of key stage 1 has been consistently good for the last three years and has steadily increased in KS2 and is now above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics.

2018 2019

It's been a busy start back to the new academic year in the art room. Pupils always begin their project work in their sketchbooks and from here their ideas are refined into 3D or more complex 2D artworks. Their sketchbooks are used for testing ideas, evaluating and reporting back on their learning.

In the Autumn Term of 2018/19 the current projects are:
Year 1: Ourselves and our homes. The pupils are looking at the work of artist Julie Arkell, who creates Rabbit Dolls.
Year 2: All Creatures Great & Small. The pupils are collecting ideas linked to a range of animals; they are going to look at the work of illustrators and use paint and print to develop their ideas.
Year 3: Ancient Rome. Year 3 are going to look at Roman artefacts and the earliest mark making made by man. They will develop continuous line drawings and experiment with wire drawings too.
Year 4: Waterworld. Pupils are experimenting with a range of painting and collage materials towards creating a 3D paper sculpture based on images of water.
Year 5/6: Ancient Greece. Composite sketchbook work is being developed towards working in a pair to make large scale brown paper backing artworks.

Here are some images to demonstrate the early stages of our artwork.

Watch out for the end of term when images will be uploaded showing our final outcomes!
