How are art teachers planning for September

    I am a specialist art teacher in an independent prep school. There is one other teacher in the department and we share one teaching space. Normally all matériels are shared between all age groups (7 to 13 year olds) and all pupils have a double lesson each week which means the room is in almost constant use. As far as I am aware we are working with year group bubbles throughout the school (which is allowed if you delve, not too deep, I to the current guidelines).
    We are thinking of having art sets for each bubble containing basic art materials and some more specialist items such as oil pastels and water colour tins. Sadly our art budget is not huge despite our independence status . On current guideline these sets would not need to be cleaned in between bubble classes as pupils in bubbles (however big) can share, have i got that right?
    The students will come to the art room so we are planning on numbered desks which they must sit at each lesson which will correspond with the numbered art sets so we know which pupils have touched what.
    Work will be put in individual folders which will be put away by the student , left and reviewed by us after 48 hours. Demos will be by visualiser.
    Our lessons will be limited by space as tables will be separated. We also have consider lessons have to be easily transferable to online learning incase we revert to lockdown again.
    What are other art teachers planning to have in art sets, how are you planning the required cleaning in busy art departments during a back to back timetable day? Ideas and advise welcome. Thank you

    Your plan sounds perfect.
    Get each child to wipe down their desk and chair at the end of each lesson (School should provide you with the correct wipes) and use gel as they come in and all should be well.
