Art and Design
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, we believe a high-quality Art and Design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create works of art, craft and design.
As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more curious and rigorous understanding of Art and Design. They should also know how Art and Design both reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Thus, allowing them to enhance their culture capital.
Our children are encouraged to develop their skills of observation and be involved in class discussion. Children are encouraged to use the environment, artefacts, the work of famous artists, and textiles for observation and as a stimulus for their own work.
Children are given opportunities to express and develop their own thoughts and feelings, which they can then use to create their own work using a wide variety of materials in both 2D and 3D.
Our school’s Art and Design Curriculum map outlines the units to be taught. The national curriculum gives a full breakdown of the statutory content to be taught within each unit. At St Gregory’s this is taught through topic lessons and specific art projects.
