The national 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.
Our 'Creative Curriculum' links Art with other subjects within a theme. In KS1 the children will develop their skills using a range of media and materials, ensuring they build upon what has been learnt in the Early Years. In LKS2 the children learn about the styles of a range of artists and are able to use their techniques in their own creations. Within upper KS2 our children hone and develop their skills. They explore a wider range of art materials, whilst developing the use of tools and their use further. This learning continues within 'Creative Curriculum' time.
