Art & DT

Using Cornerstones, our children have experience of a range of Art and Design Projects that link with their topic. Our Art curriculum ensures that children have access to a wide range of creative experiences and media. Children have the opportunity to develop skills progressively across the school. Each year group will also focus on and study the work of a particular Artist (linked to Topic). Across KS2 children will learn how to use sketch books to record and develop their observational skills. Children learn about all aspects of the design process in this skills-based curriculum, and understand that products and materials have a range of properties and purposes. Food Technology is focused on healthy eating where we prepare and cook healthy food (using food grown in our own allotment where possible). Emphasis is placed on the progression of knowledge and skills.
