Lockdown 'Sketch' Challenge!
I would love you to complete a weekly Art challenge. I would like you to sketch a drawing each week. You will need to keep these drawings and when we are allowed back in school, you can bring them in with you and add them to your school Artwork collection. You can use any medium you like; pencil, crayon, pastel…etc. You can also be as creative as you like - there is no right or wrong! Each week, you will be given a theme for your sketch. The themes will be listed below.
We are really looking forward to seeing your Artwork.
WB: 25.01.21 - The View from your Window.
WB: 01.02.21 - Animals
WB: 08.02.21 - A moment to look forward to.

Art and Design
At Fairhaven, art is taught across school through topic work. The curriculum we deliver is designed to cover the National Curriculum and also ensure that the skills the children are learning are progressive from year to year.
Art work will mostly be completed in a sketch book (which will follow the children from year group to year group) although some pieces of art and design may be seen in topic books also.
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
Key stage 1
Pupils should be taught:
Key stage 2
Pupils should be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
Pupils should be taught:
