Y3 Art & DT

Art & DT lessons take place on a Friday afternoon with Mrs Steel and Miss Pointon.

In Year 3, we teach Art & Design and Design & Technology on a half term cycle. We start the year with Art & Design, before moving onto Design & Technology in the lead up to the Christmas period.

In Year 3, we encourage the children to choose an appropriate area to work for the activity set and to tidy up their workspaces when they have finished.
