Art and Design

Our Art and Design curriculum is linked to our topic work. So for example we may go sketching around the local area as part of a Geography based topic. Alternatively, as part of our work on the question 'Who first lived in Britain?' might include some art work replicating cave paintings and our topic 'Who were the Mayans and what did we learn from them?' might lead us to use Mayan art as an inspiration for our own designs.   

We have linked famous artists and designers to each of our topics so that children study a wide range of artists and artistic styles which they use as inspiration for their own art work.  in our whole-school plan we have ensured that there is opportunity for children to work with a range of media across EYFS, Key Stage One, Lower Key Stage Two and Upper Key Stage Two.
