Art & Design
"Every child is an artist." Pablo Picasso
Our Art and Design scheme of work aims to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art.
The curriculum is founded on the Kapow Primary scheme of work which provides a comprehensive, motivating and progressive model, written by subject experts.
The curriculum has 5 strands that run throughout. These are:
- Making skills
- Generating ideas
- Formal Elements
- Knowledge of artists
These strands are revisited in every unit. In our Art and Design Skills and our Formal Elements of Art units, pupils have the opportunity to learn and practice skills discretely. The knowledge and skills from these units are then applied throughout the other units in the programme of study. Key skills are revisited again and again with increasing complexity in a cyclical curriculum model which promotes metacognition retention and allows pupils to revise and build on their previous learning.
This term during Art & Design, the children will be covering the following units of work:
Year 2 Formal Elements of Art
Year 5 Art and design: Formal elements: Architecture
EYFS All About Me & Me and My Family
Year 6 Make My Voice Heard
Year 3 Formal Elements of Art
