Art and Design

Curriculum Intent- Art and Design

At Thornhill and Arlecdon Primary School we believe that children should have the chance to develop creatively and to express themselves in a variety of ways. We believe that Art and Design provides another way for children to communicate their ideas, thoughts and feelings bout themselves and the world around them.

Our Early Years Curriculum enables children to explore and develop in knowledge and skill through themes.

We aim for children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of the EYFS:

  • Use a variety of tools to produce their own creations
  • Represent their ideas and feelings using different media
  • Describe and explain their creations to an adult

We aim for all children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of Key Stage One:

  • Use line, shape, colour, form and space to produce representations of our school
  • Compare different artists and their own work
  • Express their ideas in different ways including 3D and 2D pieces
  • Describe pattern and texture of art which they come into contact with and create reproductions

We aim for all children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of Key stage Two:

  • Investigate line, shape, colour, form and space in their work
  • Show good control using a variety of techniques and materials to express their ideas
  • Describe pattern and texture and imitate these in their own work
  • Make links between the art different peoples produced and their history
