In Art each term the same medium is used across school each term. In Autumn Term the focus is paint, in Spring Term the focus is pencil and in Summer Term the focus is sculpture.
For each medium there is a progression of skills that runs through school so that children build on their skills each year.
An important part of our art curriculum is the knowledge that children develop about different artists. Each year group has an artist that they focus on, learning about their most famous works and, where appropriate, linking their art skills work to the work of their focus artist.
Children's art work is completed in sketch books and the sequence of learning focuses on skills teaching building up to a finished piece.
