PRINTMAKING IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL THROUGH THE WORK OF WILLIAM  MORRIS

This resource was produced as a result of a professional development course, ‘Printmaking through the work of William Morris’, for primary school teachers.

It offers practical advice and support for teaching the unit of work ‘Investigating pattern’. It contains detailed planning and assessment for each session. The work of William Morris is integral and provides the initial stimulus.

The unit is planned for years 4, 5 or 6 in key stage 2. It can be adapted for key stage 1 and can be extended for year 7 in key stage 3. Support materials are included to extend teaching and learning as well as examples of childrens’ work.

We hope that this resource will help primary school teachers and children to develop their skills and techniques in printmaking as well as knowledge and understanding of the work of William Morris.
