Art

Our Art Policy follows the National Curriculum 2014 for Art Guidlines and aims to ensure that:

Key Stage 1 pupils are taught:

- to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products

- to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination

- to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space

- about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work;

Key Stage 2 pupils are taught:

- to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design

- to create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas

- to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]

- about great artists, architects and designers in history.

 

At Weston, Art objectives are taught through the Hamilton Trust topics related to each Key Stage. However, we ensure that the children are accessing Art opportunities in addition to the designated topic teaching time.
