Art and Design Technology                                                        Back

Our vision for art and DT is for…

  • Children to be immersed and have experience of a wide range of artists, styles and designers.
  • Children to respond to art and be able to make informed comments using artistic vocabulary to describe and evaluate what they see and experience.
  • Children to develop over their time with us, progressively more sophisticated skills in cooking, designing, making, drawing, painting, printing and sculpting.

Across the years groups we have planned a range of engaging topics in both art and DT to ensure good progression and also allow a broad range of skills to be taught and rehearsed.
