This is the art curriculum for Greenfield Primary School.
To develop an understanding and enjoyment of art, craft and design;
experience a broad and balanced range of art activities that show progression;
show development of ideas and their own skills through the use of a sketchbook;
link art ideas with other curriculum areas;
critique and evaluate their work, and the work of others.
We follow the new National Curriculum in art. It is a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures continuity and progression.
The topics that each key stage follow give the children the opportunity to experiment with different media, and look at work from different cultures and times.
Art is taught as a topic every alternate half term, in the opposite half term to Design Technology.
EYFS pupils have the opportunity to take part in art activities daily, as part of their continuous provision.
