Art and Design
Through our teaching in Art and Design, we develop skills and foster creativity in our children. Knowledge and skills are taught through the aspects of; colour, pattern, texture, shape and space, also of line and form. Children’s skills are applied and developed through both 2D and 3D mediums. Sketchbooks are used with increased frequency throughout the school years to record, develop and evaluate work. In every year group art is taught explicitly, although it is primarily project based within the overarching topic of the term. Inspiration is taken from famous artists, art from other cultures and/or time periods, craft makers, architects and others. Every half term Arts Week enables the entire school to take a creative approach to a school-wide topic.
