Art & Design

At Kingsland CE Primary School we follow the Primary National Curriculum. Mrs Wilson (KS1) and Mrs Pritchard (KS2) are the school's Art and Design leaders.

 

At Kingsland CE Primary School, art and design is usually taught through the context of topic work, making strong cross curricular links. The art and design curriculum is enhanced further through other opportunities, such as:

  • Leominster in Bloom
  • Kingsland Flower Festival
  • After School Art Club
  • Interfaith Learning
  • Christian festivals e.g. Christmas, Easter, Mothering Sunday

We believe it is important to value and display the children’s art and design work around the school.

 

Purpose of study

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

 

Aims

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 forms.
