ART, CRAFT & DESIGN
Art is an important part of the curriculum which allows children to develop individual creativity as well as providing opportunities for collaborative work. We aim to inspire and challenge pupils with the skills to allow them to create their own works of art, craft and design and to progress towards being able to think critically and recognise important artworks. Our curriculum is skills based and aims to provide opportunities to use a variety of media, equipment and materials in 2D and 3D work thereby allowing children to become competent in several areas. Children will often use their art skills in other curriculum areas, e.g. sketching historical characters, making religious artefacts and links with mathematical shapes and patterns. Art will provide links with our history, culture and contemporary concerns. Opportunities are also provided for children to be reflective and evaluate their work in order to recognise achievements and make improvements.
