Implementation:

At Moggerhanger Primary School Art and Design is taught as a discrete subject across all ages and stages of the school. Pupils experience learning each term that is carefully planned and organized to help children make links in their learning across other subject areas, while also delving further into the culture and influences of the periods studied.

Our Art and Design Curriculum is adapted from materials sourced through the Primary Knowledge Curriculum (PKC) which ensures all aspects of the National Curriculum (2014) are implemented while also providing clear knowledge and skill progression throughout the Art and Design journey.

Pupils develop skills and knowledge through a range of mediums and influences, including sculpting, painting, drawing and creating abstract pieces.

Impact:

  • Data drop on SIMS – Steps Aut1/Spr1/Sum1
  • Updated statements on SIMS Aut2/Spr2/Sum2
  • End of unit assessment tasks (quizzes)
  • Pupil sketch books
