Art and Design at Christ Church CE Primary School
At Christ Church, we strive to provide a high- quality art and design education that engages, inspires and challenges children’s creativity. We aim to equip children with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
In Key Stage 1, children will use a range of materials creatively and develop techniques using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space to design and make products. Opportunities are created that allow children to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination. A range of artists, craft makers and designers will be explored to provide opportunities to compare differences and similarities, linking this to their own work.
In Key Stage 2, children will build on their prior knowledge and focus on the mastery of techniques, including their control and use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increased awareness of different kinds of art and artists, craft and design.
