Art and Design
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
To inspire and enable children to:-
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
Our planning is based on the National Curriculum and EYFS, carefully tailored to maximise our resources, expertise and needs of our children.
Cross Curricular Links
Art is planned through a half termly topic approach which ensures art learning is relevant and engaging as links to other areas are made explicit. The local area utilised effectively in supporting the teaching and learning of art e.g. e.g. through looking for patterns at our local church.
