Learning in Art

We believe it is important to plan the learning journey of the children from Year R to Year 6. Even though we are an Infant School, this doesn’t stop us planning what the children will learn when they leave us. This is vitally important. As 3 schools, we have joined together to produce a joint intention of what we want the children to learn. 


End of Year 2

By the time our children leave our school in Year 2, they will have learnt how to use a range of material, mediums and techniques to design, make and develop their idea.  They will be exposed to, and appreciate, a range of artists and artistic approaches and make links to their own work.

End of Year 6

By the time our children leave our school in Year 6, they will have further developed their art, craft and design techniques through creating and experimenting while gaining a greater enthusiasm for the subject. To do this, our children will have created sketch books to improve mastery of Art & DT techniques e.g. drawing and painting and will have experimented with a range of materials for sculpture.
