Art & Design

Introduction to ART across the school.

Art is taught and linked to topics being studied, which makes it current 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.
