Art & Design

If you require any additional information regarding the curriculum other than that stated below, Skills Booklets are available from the school office which show all the objectives that children will be taught in all year groups for each subject. These booklets will be sent out at the start of each academic year.

 Additionally, you can find the National Curriculum at https://www.gov.uk/national-curriculum/overview or ask for a copy from the school office.

 

Art and design includes both 2-D and 3-D representation, in the forms of painting, drawing, printing and modelling.  We teach children different approaches and techniques in art, craft and design and give them opportunities to combine techniques in their own work. We encourage them to develop creative, imaginative and practical skills to enable them to express ideas and feelings, record observations, and communicate in visual form.  We also teach them about the work of famous artists from a variety of cultures, styles and times.

 

We expect our children to become confident in their expression of ideas and to select their own materials and resources for their work.  Much of our art work is linked to the topic for the term or to other areas of work and most of the work is used in display around the school.     

   

All children will develop:

  • knowledge and understanding of artists, other cultures and traditions, and the ability to apply these ideas to their work 
  • visual literacy - the confidence and competence to read and evaluate visual images and artefacts 
  • the ability to value the contribution made by artists to ideas, images and objects of many kinds and from many cultures 
  • the ability to organise and clear up their own working area.
