All children experience a full range of opportunities planned for 2D and 3D artwork from Reception to Year 6, as well as developing an appreciation of art in our own and other cultures. The school maintains a wide variety of materials and equipment for drawing, painting, printing, plasticine, papier mache, clay, wood, fabrics and threads, metals, plaster and photography. The high quality of children’s art, which is displayed around the school and in classrooms, is evidence of a strong and varied art curriculum.
The National Curriculum requires that children look at real-life problems, propose solutions, model these, evaluate them and modify them. We plan such opportunities across the whole curriculum. This includes sewing and cooking as well as the more engineering aspects of technology. Our Year 6 children progress to advanced work on car design and production supported by a very successful business link with Jaguar.
