CURRICULUM INTENT FOR ART

Our Art and Design curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum. The progression document outlines the progression in skills, use of different media, and knowledge about art and design set out for each year group. Pupils will explore their creative imagination, inspired by the work of recognised artists and architects, including visiting artists. They will focus on developing the skills that enabled the artist to succeed, whilst also being given opportunity to explore different ways of working to achieve a response for their audience. They will develop core knowledge centred on the language associated with tools, media, techniques and evaluation.

 

CURRICULUM IMPLEMENTATION FOR ART

Art and Design is taught discretely, with artists and pieces of art and design selected that are either contemporary to the focus of the unit or create a mood an atmosphere that supports engagement with the learning. Teachers use Kapow Primary to help with planning and delivery and to ensure good subject knowledge. They plan from the school progression document to ensure the balance of media, artists, and skills across the curriculum. Where teachers wish to vary things, they consult leaders to ensure that the breadth and balance is maintained. Teachers provide support to develop skills, through practical demonstration and/or video tutorials.
