Art & Design
The knowledge that is taught within our art & design curriculum can be viewed or downloaded at the foot of the page. The knowledge organisers (courtesy of Cornerstones Curriculum) bring together all the information that children need to learn in order to fully engage with the subject.
Within our curriculum, children are given time to use the artistic vocabulary they have learned. This may be in oral tasks such as explaining what a word means or demonstrating an art technique.
Our art topics work as companion projects to the concurrent history or geography topic. For example, the Ammonite unit is taught alongside Rocks, Relics and Rumbles. This helps to provides children with context and make links between subjects.
There are many inspirational artists, craft makers and designers within our art and design curriculum. These include some very well known artists as well as lesser known contemporary figures.
