Art & DT

Within our school we strongly believe that art and design and technology are areas of the curriculum where children should have the opportunity to express themselves. Below you will find an outline of our approach to each subject

 

 

 

 

Art

We believe that art allows children to develop practical skills and knowledge using a variety of materials and techniques so that ideas can be planned and developed both successfully and imaginatively. Through the subject, children should be able to make choices and develop visual perception and environmental awareness. Also, they are taught to recognise the aesthetic pleasure of art and learn how to be able to express opinions about their own and others’ art work.

Our art curriculum is planned to develop our pupils ability to work both independently and collaboratively on art projects, whilst understanding and responding to the world around them through visual or tactile means. A crucial part of our approach is fostering an awareness and understanding of the potential of line, shape, colour, pattern, texture, tone, form, materials, tools and communication of what children see, feel and think. At our school our pupils are given time to be able to study/observe images and artefacts from different periods, cultures and traditions; applying this knowledge to their own work.

Design and Technology

Design and technology prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world.  Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life.  The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems.  Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts.  Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators.
