Resource Hub

We have designed this hub to provide teaching inspiration and off-the-peg resources for use across the key stages. Resources are organised into sections, everything from videos to creative activity worksheets. Age ranges and timings are indicated on each page. Feedback and suggestions gratefully received!




SUPPORTING CHILDREN WITH ART (all ages):



CREATIVE ART ACTIVITES (KS1, 2 and 3):


ART BURST RESOURCE PACKS (KS1, 2, 3 and 4):

Each Art Burst resource explores an artist, an art movement or a key art theme. Each resource includes: simple background on the featured artist and artwork, information on a linked theme or movement, a connected step-by-step creative activity, suggestions for other related activities across the Curriculum, and ideas for associated age-appropriate fiction books. Art Burst Packs can be used as teaching resources to inform lessons, for planning topics, projects or schemes of work, or as learning resources for children to read and use independently.



ARTWORK OF THE DAY (KS1, 2, 3 and 4):

A Powerpoint and resource full of quick art starters to kick-start the day! Simply choose a Powerpoint slide or question each day and see where the image and enquiry question take the discussion! Perfect for whole-class discussion or paired/group work.

Virtual exhibitions of artworks from the Swindon Collection for children to explore. For learning resources on the featured artworks, see the other sections on this page.
