Covid-19 Blended Learning - Art
KS3 and KS4 – Lessons and relevant resources will be uploaded to ClassCharts once every two weeks (once a week before half term) for each year group, in line with the scheme of work being delivered in school (titled “Blended Learning”). Work can then be submitted to each Class Teacher via the ClassCharts system for feedback.
The Blended Learning that is set on ClassCharts link Students to the Art Department website and will involve the use of power Point presentations with instructions and links to specific Teacher made YouTube instructional videos for demonstrations.
Where a whole year group bubble is affected by closure, the work set will be a specific out of school-based project which aligns with the curriculum due to the need for specific resources.
KS5 - The Blended Learning that is set on ClassCharts link Students to the Art Department website with references to the assessment Objectives and exam board requirements. There are instructions and links to specific Teacher made YouTube instructional videos for demonstrations. Work can then be submitted via the ClassCharts system for feedback.

Our Curriculum Intent
At Fulston Manor, with our Creative Design curriculum, we aim to enable students to become confident and creative thinkers and makers, able to develop their own ideas and concepts in response to personal ideas, questions or problems raised. We want them to be able to work on and develop high quality artwork, showing the ability to improve and adapt their work through critical conversation, where they can articulate and communicate ideas.
At Fulston Manor, with our Art and Design curriculum, we aim to introduce students to a wide range of skills and techniques that will enable them to access the curriculum, equipping them with skills and understanding in the basic concepts governing the use of different media. This is taught through first-hand experience of handling different media and materials and through demonstrations and videos. Where possible we relate projects to the work of others in order to develop the students’ broad understanding of the meaning, significance and contribution of art and design within both contemporary cultures and that of the past, encouraging students to take inspiration from these sources. We aim to develop the students’ ability to be able to communicate opinions about their own and others work and to be able to express ideas, concepts with growing maturity. Through the making of images and artefacts, we aim to provide the students with the means to make concrete their observations and responses to the ever-changing world in which they find themselves.
