Art & DT

Art and Design

The visual arts play an important part of life here at Bessemer Primary School. Each academic year begins with an art week, the children spend the first few days completing art work which we then display at our annual art exhibition. Childs work is framed and parents have the oppertunity to purchase their childs work. Art is taught for arts sake as well as incorporated into our half termly topics. A range of art skills are taught such as; painting, drawing, printing, batik, weaving, sculpture and sewing. Childrens work is displayed in classrooms and corridoors around the school. Whenever possible children are give the opportunity to visit galleries such asĀ  Tate Modern, Dulwich Picture Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.

Visual art and DT are taught each half term, we teach a range of art skills and have worked hard to ensure these skills are built upon each year from year 1 to year 6. Please click on our progression grid to see how the subject skills are progressed through the years.
