What is it to be an artist?


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. The following statements were produced by our subject teams in September 2019 and is still relevant now.

Learning in Art


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.
