Children are taught to practise, use and apply these skills independently and collaboratively throughout their learning environment.
Children develop their subject specific vocabulary (generic and content based) through explicit teaching of vocabulary and definitions.

IMPLEMENTATION 

Teaching:
Children are taught a range of art techniques under the principles of the six main art skills (painting, drawing, printing, crafting, sculpting and using technology) in explicit taught sessions. A series of lessons will follow a specific teaching sequence that allows children to focus on a specific artist and skill, considering the subject specific vocabulary, practising the taught skill, applying the taught skill and evaluating learning using the subject specific vocabulary.
Children develop their subject specific vocabulary (generic and content based) through explicit teaching of vocabulary and definitions.
Children develop understanding of key concepts and vocabulary.

IMPACT
