Early Years Foundation Stage

INTENT 
We provide a stimulating and high quality Early Years Curriculum by providing challenging and playful opportunities across the prime and specific areas of learning and development.
We are ambitious in our expectations of all pupils, ensuring strong cross curricula links are made.

• Children will be introduced to subject specific vocabulary that an artist would use in order to talk about and evaluate their art work and the work of others.
• Children will interpret and present like an artist in order to explore and record their ideas.
• Children will learn, work and talk like an artist in order to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.



 

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.

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.
Children develop understanding of key concepts and vocabulary.

IMPACT
Children demonstrate their understanding of key vocabulary during lesson observations and discussions and through work that they produce.
 

Key Stage 1

INTENT

In Key Stage One we provide a high quality art and design education, which engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children are taught to think critically and evaluate their work and the work of others. 
We teach Art & Design through the national curriculum setting high ambitions and expectations for all pupils ensuring strong cross curricular links are made.
• Children will be introduced to subject specific vocabulary that an artist would use in order to critically analyse and evaluate their art work and the work of others.
• Children will research, interpret and present like an artist in order to explore and record their ideas, knowing about great artists, craft makers and designers.
• Children will learn, work and talk like an artist in order to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

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

Outcomes:
Children demonstrate their understanding of key vocabulary during lesson discussions and work. 
Children have demonstrated that:
• They can use subject specific vocabulary
that an artist would use in order to talk about and evaluate their art work and the work of others:
- “Form is a visible shape.”
- “Sculpting is using shapes.”

  • They can learn, work and talk like an artist in order to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.

- “I am wetting my clay to make it stick together.”
