Subject lead: Mrs Hartley
Areas covered: Art and Design Technology
Our intent for art and design technology is that our children will be engaged, inspired and challenged, equipped with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and design. Our children will learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through our teaching of design they will make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they will develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. Through our teaching of art children will be able to think critically and know how art reflects and shapes our history, and contributes to a wide range of cultures. They will learn about great artists and produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences, become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art techniques.
