In Art and Design students will concentrate on investigating, making and developing their knowledge and understanding of the work of artists, designers and crafts people. Students will develop a range of skills in a broad range of media, focus on the use of colour, mark making and printmaking and will develop the use of a sketchbook. They will develop their design skills and work in 2 and 3 dimensions inspired by a variety of art genres.
All pupils will be encouraged to take part in an Art Exhibition. KS3 students will be given the opportunity to take part in the Bronze Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification.
It is expected that homework set should take no longer
than 20 minutes (Years 5 & 6) or 30 minutes (Years 7&8)
to complete. In addition to the tasks set out by the
timetable, we request that children read or are read to
daily for 15 minutes.
