Art & Design
A scheme of work is implemented that encourages our pupils to experience tasks that will ensure they design and produce items, develop and practise skills and investigate ideas. They have opportunities to work independently and in groups, to learn to apply knowledge and skills they have gained. The children are also taught to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in order to design and make products. Part of this process includes the selection of appropriate materials and tools, and working with the elements of construction, textiles and food.
Each child is encouraged to note and develop cross-curricular links between Art and Design and other subjects and to harness their knowledge from other areas. We hope that during their technology experience pupils have opportunities to modify their product after evaluating it. The skills learnt in Art and Design allows pupils to apply gained skills in other subject areas.
