Art at St Silas Primary School
At St Silas, we follow the national curriculum for Art and Design. Within this there are 4 overall aims for all children:
- All children produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- All children become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other techniques
- All children evaluate and analyse creative works using the appropriate language
- All children know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art.
We use a detailed skills progression document to plan and deliver art lessons. This ensures that art and design skills are developed systematically throughout their time at school.
Art is delivered in blocks, we find this works best as we are able to plan, deliver and evaluate lessons to able us to progress learning effectively over a short time frame.
