Art and Design

Art and Design is a subject in which children can express their imagination and creativity. They are engaged, inspired and challenged to make their own works of art and craft. They experiment with different media and techniques which progress throughout the school. Through artist studies they learn how art and design reflects and shapes our history and contributes to our culture.


Art and Design is currently taught through and within our half termly topic areas. Links are made to other subjects such as Science, History and Geography where possible. Artistic techniques are also taught discretely within topic lessons so that children can develop a wide range of skills.
