Art and Music at Downside
Art at Downside
Here’s a brief snapshot of just some of the many exciting things that have happened in our school so far, during this academic year.
Our school has now joined the Artsmark Community, and we are currently on our Artsmark journey. We’re developing our Arts provision and are working towards achieving the Artsmark Silver Award. Watch this space!
Lunchtime Art Club - Year R
At the end of the Autumn Term Year R performed songs and rhymes to Downside Pre- School. Mr Guy and the Reception class teachers were very proud of our pupils, and the younger children really enjoyed the performance.
Year 6 - working in the style of Picasso
After school club - focussing on Wildlife
Thursday after school Art Club is open to Year 2 to Year 6 pupils. They’ve been focussing on wildlife and have explored a variety of techniques to produce images of birds and animals.
The children particularly enjoyed tearing paper to create representations of birds in flight.
They considered the best way to replicate skin texture when modelling these elephants from clay, and used a variety of tools to create this effect; including nail and tooth brushes!
Lunchtime Art Club - Year R and 1
The Year R children have been creating images of the Gruffalo and other story characters, in various ways.
Year 1 children have been drawing pictures of themselves and their best friends.
