Art and Design

Art and Design is delivered throughout the school through a cross curricular approach which enables the National Curriculum objectives to be covered in a way that interests and engages the children. Paintings, artists and styles are linked to the topic through our Project Based Learning. In each Year and through these, the children learn and experiment with the skills and techniques to produce their own interpretations linked to a theme and end product. For example, when studying chocolate the children were able to learn skills such as sketching when drawing still life. In Year 3 and 4 the children studying sustainable fishing accessed new skills such as fish printing with squid ink. The children also take place in a wide range of art and design based projects, working within our wider community to create images for events such as Mazey Day.
