Curriculum in focus- Art and Design

Art inspires one of the highest forms of creativity and is life enhancing. Pupils should be introduced to a wide range of Artists and techniques whilst exploring their own artist expression through exploring different mediums.

Early learning goals for the end of EYFS

 

Children at the expected level of development will: - Safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form, and function; -

Share their creations, explaining the process they have used; -

Make use of props and materials when role playing characters in narratives and stories

 

The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
