The National Curriculum

Art and design programs of study.

 

Purpose of study

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

 

Aims

Key stage 1 Pupils are taught to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products. They use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination. Pupils develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. They explore the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

 

Key stage 2 Pupils are taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. Pupils create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas. Key Stage 2 pupils improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay] and learn about great artists, architects and designers in history.

Enjoy the Summer break, the school will re open on Wednesday 6th September 2017.
