About Art and Design


Art units are always linked in with Curriculum Topics and are designed to enhance children's learning. All aspects of the new curriculum are taught and both children and teachers keep sketchbooks to show the value in the process of art and not just the end product.


Pupils are taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.


Pupils are taught:

To create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review & revisit ideas

To improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials (For example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay)
