Opening a World of Learning

Art and DT

Spring term 

How is metal embossed?

We shall be examining artwork from different periods of time, including the Tudors, to see how artists have used embossing techniques to create images or to decorate items. 

We shall explore and develop our own skills before creating our own embossed Tudor shield. 



Mazes were often forms of entertainment and important features in rich people's gardens. We are going to be investigating what the key design features of mazes are in order to design and make our very own wooden maze puzzles. 

Autumn term Does a hat tell a story?


We will be finding out about the types of hats worn by people in different parts of the American continents.


We will be learning about the hat designer Phillip Tracey. 


Using our discoveries, we will design and make our own hat suitable for a Brazilian carnival.
