Our intent is to develop pupils who can…
Value Art and Design and to access this through a broad and balanced curriculum.
Develop and extend their knowledge, skills and understanding in drawing, painting, printing, textiles, 3D, Collage & IT.
Express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas and to work both individually and collaboratively with others.
Think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.
Feel confident approaching artwork, feel a strong sense of achievement, value the impact of art within their own lives.
How do we promote learning in Art and Design?
Art and design is taught in all year groups through at least one topic per term.
When planning, teachers make links to other curriculum areas, especially History, Geography and Science topics.
Working in this way enables the children to make links and remember what they have learnt.

"Art is fun and creative. You can do lots of things in your art book, but it’s not all about drawing. You can also do sketching and make 3D things too.” Hollie Y5
