Art and Design
The art and design curriculum aims to engage and inspire pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own pieces of art work through various mediums. It is about children being able to think critically and reflect on how art and design has shaped our history and contributed to our culture as a country.
The children in our school are encouraged to explore their ideas and be creative by recording their ideas in sketch books which follow them through their school journey. Children have access to a wide variety of resources which enables them to be creative in their drawings, painting, sculptures and other art and design techniques. Evaluation is also a major part of our art and design curriculum with the children being critical of their own artwork but also of other artists in history. We link art and design to other areas of the curriculum including History, English, Maths and Science to produce a range of art work which is displayed throughout school.
