Art & Design

Intent

 

The core curriculum for Art and Design aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and a range of other art, craft and design techniques
  • record, evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms

 

Implementation

 

EYFS

 

Skills in the Foundation Stage are planned through the objectives within the EYFS.

 

Key Stage 1

 

  • to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products
  • to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination
  • to 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

 

Key Stage 2

 

Pupils should be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials,

with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.

 

  • to create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas
  • to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of
  • materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay] about great artists, architects and designers in history

 

Planning

There is a programme of study for Art and Design in place from Year 1 through to Year 6.

Teachers from Foundation Stage to Year 6 will plan to ensure full coverage of the skills relating to the Art and Design curriculum for that year group throughout the year.

 

Assessment, Recording & Reporting

As in all other areas of the curriculum, assessment is an integral part of the teaching process. Class teachers should keep records of work carried out through the use of sketchbooks, examples of work and photographs. This will portfolio the pupils’ development of skills and attainment.  Progress against key objectives is tracked by class teachers

 

Formative assessment is used to guide the progress of individual pupils in Art and Design. It involves identifying each child’s progress in each aspect of the curriculum, determining what each child has learned and what should therefore be the next step in their learning. Formative assessment is mostly carried out informally by the teachers in the course of their teaching and should be based on the identified assessment opportunities.

Children’s progress in Art and Design is reported to parents through the pupil annual report and termly consultation meetings

 

Monitoring

Teaching and Leaning for Art and Design is monitored through Learning Walks, displays, sketchbooks, photographic evidence and Pupil Voice.
