Art is taught either weekly or in blocks depending on the topic being covered. The topics are cross-curricular and have clear links to the creative curriculum. Skills are taught and refined explicitly.
The children start school with different levels of prior knowledge and experiences. EYFS allows them to play and experiment with materials in a child led manner. They then develop their understanding of colour, materials and artistic techniques. Children are provided with a rich variety of art based experiences.
As a school, we endeavour to provide an education that inspires and is well rounded. The teaching of art offers a diverse range of experiences and ensures that their education is well rounded.
