Art and Design
The children are given a wide range of opportunities to develop skills in art, craft and design activities. They build on their understanding and appreciation of art in a variety of forms and styles, and from a variety of cultures.
Children are encouraged to observe natural phenomena and to develop an awareness of shape, colour, texture and pattern, as well as an understanding of the properties of materials.
The children cook, and everyone enjoys the lovely smell that wafts through the school as they do it!
Design and Technology enables children to tackle practical tasks and to link a range of other subjects together. Children are encouraged to find solutions to problems and improve existing designs. They will investigate, plan, make and evaluate their own models, and find out how existing designs and artefacts work. They will develop and use a range of practical skills and are taught to use technological tools with confidence.
