The Art and Design curriculum is structured in termly units as well as forming integral parts of the topic work. It is taught on a two year cycle.

Art stimulates creativity and imagination, and provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences.

Through Art activities the children use colour, tone, form, texture, shape, pattern and line, and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think.

This is the starting point for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 teaching.

The Design Technology curriculum is taught in topics, by planning, making and evaluating in order to develop skills and ensure coverage of the National Curriculum.

All children are encouraged to attend cooking club to develop this area of the subject further.
