At St Margaret’s CE Primary School we aim to inspire and develop each child’s creativity through an exciting art curriculum. Our Art curriculum ensures we provide the children with a wide range of opportunities where children can build on their knowledge and skills year on year.
Our children learn the skills of drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art. In each key stage, children practise skills and record their ideas. The children plan and draw in sketchbooks, which progress with them through the school. Children develop knowledge, styles and vocabulary associated used by a range of famous artists.
The skills children acquire are applied to their cross curricular learning.
Our Art curriculum is planned to ensure that children reflect and evaluate their work and others. Classroom displays reflect the children’s sense of pride in their artwork and this is also demonstrated by creative outcomes across the wider curriculum. The school environment also celebrates children’s achievements in art and whenever possible uses the outdoor as well as indoor environment.
