Our overall intent is that pupils when they leave Y6 they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and wisdom to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. For children to develop a love of art and design and learn to grow in confidence when using a wide range of techniques and media. As children develop as artists, they stop and reflect upon the awe and wonder of the natural world around them. They will know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation and the world in which they live.
Art is a key subject where we promote Building Learning Power skills: children are constantly encouraged to develop perseverance, collaboration, imitation, develop empathy, demonstrate absorption, notice, plan, revise their designs, capitalise on the resources they have and use their imagination.
For Art, we follow the Kapow scheme of learning. The documents below show the progressive key learning that takes place in this subject across all key stages.
