Art & Design
Subject Leader: Mrs Walklett
“Creativity takes courage.” – Henri Matisse
At Cheetwood Primary School, our intent is that every child has the right to create and express themselves with confidence and imagination. To ensure that our pupils are taught consistently to a high standard, we use Kapow’s combined Art and Design and DT Schemes of Work on an alternating half-termly basis.
Our Art and Design scheme of work aims to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art. Our scheme has been written by experts in their field and is designed to give pupils every opportunity to develop their ability, nurture their talent and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about art and artists across cultures and through history. We want pupils to confidently analyse the work of Artists and use this inspiration to influence their own creativity and decision-making process. Through studying a diverse range of artists, pupils will learn how art and design reflect and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of the place we live.
Our scheme of work supports pupils to meet the National Curriculum end of key stage attainment targets and has been written to fully cover the National Society for Education in Art and Design’s progression competencies.
