Art and Design



Art lessons are linked in context by themes from the Humanities curriculum. Throughout lessons, children develop their skills of drawing, painting and sculpture in a progressive manner as well as developing design techniques using colour, textiles, pattern, line, shape, form and space. All children also throughout the two year rolling programme study a range of significant artists.

In order to ensure progression of knowledge and skills, we follow the Kapow scheme for art. This is planned with mixed aged classes in mind and is adapted in content to our school. The progression grids are available to view at school as the documents cannot be published on other websites. 

Local artists will continue to be used within the scheme to ensure maximum use of our local context. Visits to local art galleries also will continue to enrich the experience for our children.
