Art

We are teaching the new 2014 art curriculum. We are following the new National Curriculum 2014 https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum

Art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides our children with visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of responding to and understanding the world. We teach children to approach their own work through colour, form, texture, pattern and 3D work. Through art activities children are given the opportunity to communicate what they see feel and think. They learn to make informed judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions as well as exploring the ideas and meanings in the work of others.

Early experiences explore visual, tactile and sensory qualities and children begin to understand colour, shape, space, pattern and texture and use them to represent their own feelings. During Key Stage Two children develop their creativity and imagination through more complex activities. We build on skills, control of materials, tools and techniques. Children become more critically aware of the role and purpose of art, craft and design in different times and cultures by visiting galleries and exhibitions and working alongside artists in school. We hope our children become more confident as a result and are able to communicate freely what they see, feel and think.

Children are encouraged to use and take ownership of their sketch books to gather ideas; practise important skills; experiment with their designs and to review and revisit their existing ideas.
