Curriculum – Art

At Cassiobury Infant and Nursery school we follow the National Curriculum programme of study for Art and Design.

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should 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. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

In the EYFS at Cassiobury Infants, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function
  • Use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes
  • Represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through Art and Design

EYFS Framework 2021

In KS1 at Cassiobury Infants we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles, collage and printing techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms

Today in forest school we made our own pieces of art using natural resources.
We talked about whether we had chosen to make abstract or real life art.

We have loved learning about collage this afternoon. In groups we cut long and short strips and then glued them into a piece of paper to create a 3D collage. #CassInfArt

We have completed our textile art work in the style of @orlakiely
We used black pens to outline our designs and then used pastels for our repeating pattern #CassInfArt
