We aim to deliver a high-quality art and design education that will inspire and challenge pupils as well as build on their prior knowledge and skills to create their own art works. Pupils will be inspired to design and make products within a variety of contexts using a range of subject knowledge such as mathematics, science or computing. In line with the National Curriculum we will provide lessons to ensure that all pupils:
We have designed a broad and diverse curriculum, which has been derived from the National Curriculum, to make sure children are provided with a range of opportunities to develop their Art and DT skills. It is our vision to nurture, explore, and bring out the artistic talent which lies within each student.
Afterschool clubs, Enrichment clubs and Theme weeks are additional opportunities to enhance the chidren’s imaginations and creativity. Developing displays is another area where children can show case their widening art and DT ability and be proud of the work they produce year on year.
At Brushwood we want the children to enjoy and learn from exploring and experimenting with new ideas whilst building on their previous knowledge. Pushing the boundaries with different materials and learning what they can achieve through manipulating and sculpting a variety of different mediums to create unique, diverse pieces of work to be proud of. To enable high quality teaching of art and DT, the subject leader works alongside all class teachers to ensure that all lesson content is progressive and builds on children’s previous knowledge. Learning walks and analysis of children’s sketch books provide an insight into how each child is developing creatively.
