Intent: To engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
Implementation: At St Mary's Art is taught as part of a thematic approach, with links being made to other areas of the curriculum where possible. St Mary's follows the National Curriculum for Art in all year groups to enable children to make good progress from EYFS to Year 6. The school uses the Lancashire planning as a basis for what we teach. Lessons are taught through topics with half a term spent on each topic. Assessment is tracked on the school assessment system of Target Tracker.
Take a look at our last whole school Art project. Our school theme was 'Places'. Each class produced a piece of artwork using different mediums and techniques. We worked with Images School Art Exhibitions to organise a Children's Art Gallery in School.
Our Art Exhibition was really successful. Thank you to everyone who came along to see all the wonderful work!
