Christ The King RC Primary School

Art & Design


Our Art & Design curriculum is designed to challenge and inspire pupils so that they can develop their skills in creating, inventing and evaluating their own art pieces and structures. Our children participate in a wide range of activities including observational drawing, collage, textiles, and building sculptures. Whilst facilitating critical thinking and problem-solving skills, Art & Design also introduces children to concepts such as sustainability and art history.

Take a look at our children’s sketch books, which records all their amazing artwork. Children bring their personal sketchbooks with them as they travel up through school, so they can look back over their creative journeys and continuously develop their skills.

Many of our creative lessons have cross-curricular links. Here, you can see the children’s masterpieces adorning walls around the school to document what they’ve learned.

Art & Design includes theory as well as creative expression. See our pupils delve into the history of different art periods and artists, such as Van Gogh and Rousseau.


Art is a subject for all, there are a wide variety of mediums for the children to work in, with the intention of them finding a style or method that’s suits them best. Artwork is celebrated by both staff and peers, with final pieces being used for display.

Children will look at examples of art work from a wide variety of cultures, faiths, races and genders. These works of art will serve as inspiration to the children when they create their own pieces.

Art around our school

“I enjoy learning about lots
of different artists and
all their work!”

Yordanos – Year 6

Our children use sketch books to record all their amazing art work, this allows for their progression to be documented right through school. Children bring their own sketch books with them as they travel up through school so they can build and develop on their creative journeys.

Many of our creative lessons have cross curricular links and the children love to create beautiful crafts to decorate our walls around
Christ the King!

“I love learning about all the different techniques we can use in our Art work!”

Kaden – Year 6

As well as creating masterpieces in our practical Art and Design lessons, we also take part in theory lessons, delving into the history and works of different artists and sculptors like Van Gogh and Rousseau.
