Intent/What we aim to do through our Art and Design Curriculum

At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, through the provision of our Art and Design Curriculum, it is our aim for pupils to learn to:

  • 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.

In addition, at St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, through the provision of Art and Design based knowledge, skills, experiences and opportunities, it is our aim for all pupils to:

  • develop their own identities
  • become well-rounded
  • help make the world a better place
  • feel safe and confident to explore as well as contribute and take risks
  • strive for excellence
  • develop inquisitive minds and become self-motivated learners
  • develop a lifelong love of learning

Adaptations are made to Art lessons to ensure that all children are able to access the curriculum and are not disadvantaged by Special Educational Needs or Disability.

Implementation/How we teach Art and Design

Please find below three progression grids, which detail the Art and Design knowledge and skills that all pupils should acquire as they progress from Nursery through to Year 6.

Please find below the knowledge organisers that children are given at the start of each new Art and Design unit being taught. A knowledge organiser is a single sheet of paper that lists all of the important facts that pupils should know by the end of a unit of work.
