At Westwood we are guided by the National Curriculum for Art (2014). The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art form
At Westwood we use an Art Scheme of work which allows the children to develop these skills through
Examples of schemes of work can be found below.
Art is also taught and delivered as part of the Topic Curriculum. Children have opportunities to apply the skills learnt in standalone Art lessons to their topic activities.
