At Aiskew, Leeming Bar CE Primary School, we take great pride in our Art and Design learning we place a high value on Art as one of the highest forms of human creativity. We recognise that Art should engage, inspire and challenge pupils whilst equipping them with the knowledge, skills and wisdom to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. Pupils are encouraged to explore their thoughts and ideas through their imagination. Pupils develop their knowledge, understanding and wisdom by having opportunities to practise their skills. Through teaching and learning about great artists and designers, and the works they have created, our pupils 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. We encourage our pupils to reflect and think about what they are creating in a meaningful way. Giving our children quality, progressive art teaching will allow them to communicate and express themselves in new and imaginative ways. Our ultimate aim is that all children will develop a love of Art and Design and learn to grow in confidence when using a wide range of techniques and media. Art provides many opportunities for children to stop and reflect upon the awe and wonder of the natural world around us.
Here is the art curriculum for KS2. It is over a 4 year rolling programme.
