Art & Design
Art is taught and linked to topics currently being studied in and around our core texts; making it applicable and meaningful. A variety of progressive skills are covered in the areas of drawing, painting, 3D work, collage, printing, textiles and Digital Media. In the EYFS and Year 1 classes, Art is regularly incorporated into our ‘themed curriculum’ approach.
All children focus on the skills covered in our curriculum by researching, evaluating and developing their own skills in the different medias focused on in their own Year groups. Furthermore, across the school, children have the chance to attend Art and Drama based clubs and workshops after school. These clubs develop their skills in collage, origami, drama and the planning and production of models.
There are also opportunities for pupils to show off their art skills in competitions that take place in school and out. Our most recent competition involved children designing their own album cover in the style of Sir Peter Blake; getting the chance to have their work displayed in one of Liverpool’s top museums.
