Art and Design

“Art is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.” Quentin Blake

We believe that Art should enable the children to communicate what they see, feel and think. Children should experiment with their ideas, their use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. Self evaluation of work is encouraged and children are taught how to be resilient to achieve their goals.

We use sketchbooks to record experience and imagination, to help the children develop their ideas and to show progression in their artistic ability.  Following the Chris Quigley  Essentials Curriculum we teach art through the curriculum, linking topics and the wider curriculum as it gives children the opportunities to bring learning to life.
