The Intent of Art and Design at Branston C of E Infant Academy
The Art and Design curriculum supports children to become artists and helps children to express the world around them through a variety of different mediums such as drawing, sculpture, painting, and printing. We provide children with a whole variety of different experiences in EYFS and KS1 so that they can communicate and express their thoughts, ideas, and emotions using colour, texture, pattern, and form.
The Implementation of Art and Design at Branston C of E Infant Academy
At Branston C of E Infant Academy, Art is taught through a range of practical activities that allow pupils to develop their skills. It is taught within a meaningful context that develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of their world. Pupils will be given the opportunity to use a variety of art materials and work on different scales.
Our aim is that children will have broad experience of art mediums and begin to develop a sense of confidence in expressing themselves in using these. The sequencing of learning is maintained through revisiting skills and techniques taught in a systematic teaching approach. Inspirational artists, from the variety of different mediums from across the curriculum, are to be revised whilst supporting the teaching of the specific medium.
The Impact of Art and Design at Branston C of E Infant Academy
As artists, children are confident in their knowledge and application of a range of art techniques. They have had the opportunity to learn about and be inspired by several significant artists and their works. Children will show an understanding of the value of ‘the Arts’ as a subject area and the breath that the subject encompasses. Sketchbooks and classroom displays show a progression of skills across EYFS and Key Stage One.
