Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity.
Our curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- 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.
We have art lessons across the week but also have themed art days or art projects where the whole school will work on a specific theme.
Art is used for display for a variety of purposes. It not only creates a welcoming and child friendly environment, but it shows evidence of the learning that has been taking place. Displays are used to challenge and encourage all children as examples of what is possible, and also provide support for learning with key vocabulary, questions and facts.
