There’s a new theme pack available on the 123 Scheme of Work – Art and Design. This month’s featured theme is the creative subject of art and design. In primary school, art and design can be fun, it can be decorative and it can also be used to convey a message, or tell a story. It can be created for exhibition, demonstration and illustration purposes, or it can simply be produced for personal enjoyment and as a vehicle for expressing the artist’s imagination and creativity. There can be little doubt that the subject has wide-ranging appeal and artistic creation is really enjoyed by many – children and adults alike!
This month we have added a great new theme pack on the topic of Local History – a great subject for the summer with lots of opportunities to get out of the classroom and explore your local area.
HOT NEWS****READ ALL ABOUT IT**** A new theme pack is now available on the 123SOW on the subject of News, Current Affairs and Fake News and how you can use these in the classroom. When I was at Primary School, we loved putting together a School Newspaper with interviews with the teachers, hand drawn pictures (no digital cameras then) and news about the new building that was underway. Today, it is really easy to put together a newspaper, news sheet or a news website. Check out 123SOW to get started.
