Here at Northwood Park Primary School we believe that high-quality Art and Design lessons will engage, inspire and challenge pupils to think innovatively, use their self-expression and develop their creative understanding. Our Art and Design curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials.
Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function. Children then build on these skills in Key Stage One by using drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their own ideas, experiences and imagination.
In Key Stage Two children use sketch books to record their Art work. They use drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials, building on the skills acquired in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One. This helps to improve their mastery of art and design techniques.
Children in both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two will learn about great artists, craft makers and designers. Children can then use the techniques from these significant individuals in their own Art work. The children at Northwood Park Primary will always be given the freedom to explore Art using their own imaginations.
