At Lakeside we have developed our Art curriculum to ensure their learning builds upon the knowledge they learnt in previous year groups and topics. We adopt a topic based approach to our curriculum. Each year the children study five different topics and Art knowledge is linked to these topics. Further information can be found in the document 'How is Art taught at Lakeside' and the progression map, to outline how skills and knowledge develop throughout the school, can be found here

Remembrance Day

The children have created some very detailed Remembrance drawings and our school display is now up.

To find out more on the early years curriculum, please look at the new 'Development Matters' document.  The Expessive Arts and Design section of the early years curriculum is from page 114. 

The reception children have also started their weekly visits to our Forest School. This week they could make representations of people, especially those closest to them as our topic is all about our community this half term.

Forest School

We are very lucky here at Lakeside as we have our own forest school area within our grounds. The children have the opportunity to develop their skills and resilience, whilst exploring the world of transient art. Here is a small selection of the work that has been produced so far.....
