Art and Design

 

Our Art and Design curriculum is based on the National Curriculum document 2014.  We aim to encourage our children through a wide variety of art activities to develop skills and to explore their creativity.

Through the teaching of art the children will have the opportunity to explore colour, shape, space, form, pattern and texture.

In each year the children will have the chance to paint, draw, print, use textiles and clay and work in both 2D and 3D. They will also learn about the work of a variety of different artists and craftspeople as well as art from other cultures.

Year group teachers plan for art on a termly basis and plan appropriate cross-curricular activities linked to the class topic. The children's work is celebrated and much of it can be seen on display in the classrooms and around school, making a bright and stimulating learning environment for all of us. Some examples of our work can be seen below.

 

We get involved in art and design in the community wherever possible.  As examples, we have designed and painted the outside of the public toilets in Brampton, created ephemeral art as part of our Platinum Green Tree Award, and have been successful in the art classes at the Cumberland Show for a number of years.

Design and Technology

 

We aim to encourage our children through a wide range of designing and making projects to develop skills and to explore their creativity.

Through the teaching of DT the children will have the opportunity to design, make, evaluate and develop their technical knowledge.  They can also develop skills in cooking and nutrition. 


In each year group the children will have the opportunity to choose resources, use different tools and materials, join materials together, evaluate their products and look at the work of different designers.


Year group teachers plan for DT on a termly basis and plan appropriate cross-curricular activities linked to the class topic. The children's work is celebrated and much of it can be seen on display in the classrooms and around school.  You can see some of our work below.

 

We get involved in designing and making in the community wherever possible.  Recently we have grown and cooked our own vegetables in the community garden, designed and made poppies as part of the Brampton WW1 centenary celebrations, and have worked with a designer to create willow sculptures on our school field.
