Art

At our school art is an important and integral part of the curriculum. We teach art to stimulate creativity, imagination and as a way for children to make sense of the world they live in. The teaching and learning of art is linked very closely to the acquisition of vocabulary and its meaning, and is considered a strength of the school.

Children will experience a carefully planned and varied art curriculum which includes opportunities for them to develop the skills of drawing, painting, collage, 3D and textiles. Staff plan to ensure a progression in the teaching and learning of the elements of art (line, tone, texture, colour and pattern) and provide the children with stimulating resources, including a wide variety of artist’s work from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds. These resources, including real life drawing and painting opportunities, are chosen purposefully to support and enhance other curriculum areas.

All children are encouraged to reflect on and evaluate their own art work, and that of others, and they are supported well by staff so that they are able to reach their full potential.  SEND children, in particular, achieve great success in art and this, in turn, raises their self-esteem.

At Whitefield,  the Art objectives from the National Curriculum are taught, focusing very much on developing children skills. Artist work is used frequently to develop our children language, vocabulary and as a stimulus for creative writing .  It is a great contributing factor to the high standards our children achieve.

 

The content of the Key Stage One Art and Design curriculum includes pupils learning to:

  • use a range of materials creatively to design and make products;
  • use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination;
  • develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space;
  • about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.
