Art forms an important part of the curriculum which most children really enjoy. We believe art education stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving our pupils unique opportunities to develop the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form. We believe that Art should be taught as an individual subject as well as incorporated into other curriculum lessons. We want our pupils to improve their mastery of art and design techniques by learning specific skills and techniques. They will experience using a range of materials and learn about great artists, architects and designers in history. We record our pupil’s progression in art through the use of sketch books, which pass with the child to the next year group
Design and Technology
Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. It focusses on developing children’s knowledge of design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control, materials and food. We teach this subject through other curriculum areas but focus on key skills through the school.
