We will be given plenty of opportunity to develop our creativity this year! Children will be studying the animal artwork of different welsh artists (John Kennedy Brown and Seren Bell) making comparisons with their own work. They will select their favourite artwork and record ideas through observation, experience and imagination, using a range of materials and methods in the style of the artist studied. They will develop ideas by collecting and organising resources and will learn how to control a range of materials, tools and techniques to achieve this.
Through music, children will have experience of playing instruments, showing control of the musical elements. They will maintain an instrumental part in a compositional piece on the Deep Oceans and through African Drumming to incorporate with our project of Fantastic Beasts. They will work with others and use musical ideas to produce compositions using appropriate musical elements.
We will also work together to plan a musical performance with a choreographed dance for our school Eisteddfod. We will all need to contribute our ideas to the group in order to achieve an effective Eisteddfod entry. The school choir is available to all who wish to pursue extra musical activities. Recorder club is also available to all pupils. Music lessons will provide opportunities for performing, composing and appraising.
