Art and DT

The intent of our Art curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement in the area of Art enabling them to know more about art and artists, remember more about art and the artists they learn about and understand how to use and apply this knowledge to impact upon their own art work more. School has identified key intentions that drive our Art curriculum.

 Art in the curriculum

We plan using the National Curriculum

We enhance the curriculum using progression grids.

Subject Progression grids are used to develop long term planning.

Teachers use the long term planning to plan units of work and deliver individual lessons.

 

 

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY (DT)

Design and Technology prepares children to take part in the development of today’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems. Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators.   We live in a technological age, surrounded by artefacts and systems which have been produced, designed and made for us by other humans working together in a complex range of activities.
