Our children enjoy the self-expression that they experience in Art.
They are always keen to learn new skills and work hard to perfect those shown to them.
The children’s art is very often cross-curricular, and helps them to express feelings and emotions in art, as well as show their knowledge and understanding in history, geography and science.
Our Art and Design curriculum.
The documents below outline our Art and Design curriculum.
Art and Design Curriculum
This document outlines how we have planned to deliver the National Curriculum in Art and Design across Years 1- 6.
Art and Design and EYFS
The EYFS framework is structured very differently to the national curriculum as it is organised across seven areas of learning rather than subject areas.
Whilst we prefer not to refer to Art and Design as a discrete subject on the Early Years and Foundation Stage curriculum, it can be found within various areas of learning.
For example, relevant statements can be found in the following areas:
• Physical Development
• Expressive Arts and Design
This development of knowledge and understanding does not happen in isolation without simultaneously and symbiotically developing other areas of learning.
Our EYFS curriculum document provides the overview of how we deliver the EYFS framework in school and prepare our children for the National Curriculum covered from Year 1 upwards.
