Art & Design
Year 1- 6
The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences;
- Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpting and other art, craft and design techniques
- Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- Know about great artists, craft makers, and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
The bedrock of the national curriculum is our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which has carefully prepared children for the learning journey ahead. Within a nurturing and play-based EYFS environment, children have learned basic and transferable skills; absorbed relevant knowledge and grown in maturity, as well as developing a thirst for learning. The details of your child's learning at this important stage and how it has prepared them for the journey ahead can be found below.
