National Curriculum - Art and design key stages 1 to 2

 

 

Art is highly valued in school and our enthusiastic staff have provided children with a wide range of projects and opportunities over the years.  Art takes place in classroom lessons and on large-scale.  Sometimes, school goes ‘off timetable’ absorbing themselves in projects.  Children thrive on having a purpose for their work, whether it’s to be shown at an art exhibition, windows of local shops, to be sold to raise money at school fairs or for display around school.  The school gained Arts Mark status and last year offered Art Award for the first time to children who took part in Art Club. 

The school seeks to develop the children’s enjoyment and appreciation of art alongside creative practical experience, developing key skills throughout the Foundation Stage , and Key Stages 1 and 2. The children will experience drawing , painting, printing, collage, textiles, sculpture and digital media. They will be taught appropriate techniques and skills and explore a wide range of materials. The children will be taught to present their ideas in creative ways. They will study the work of a wide variety of artists. Their work may reflect the themes studied in other areas of the curriculum.
