Our art curriculum is designed to enable pupils to invent, create and experiment with their own works of art and design.
They do this by developing their knowledge of how to paint, draw, print and sculpt linked to the National Curriculum. Each unit of work provides children with the opportunity to learn the components they need to produce composite pieces of art and design.
Key Stage One Pupils are given opportunities to use a range of materials creatively to design and make their composite pieces. They explore different techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space and study five units across the two year groups. They learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work. Key Stage Two The content of the art and design curriculum in Key Stage 2 builds on what children have learned in Key Stage 1. Children develop and improve their skills in drawing, painting, printing and sculpting by using a range of different materials. They study five units in Y3/4 and five units in Y5/6. They create sketch books to record their learning and to use them to review and revisit ideas and continue to learn about artists, architects and designers.
