Art and design at St Thomas is about encouraging children to express their thoughts and emotions in order to connect with themselves, others and the wider world.
We use five key concepts to thread through our learning which progresses from Early Years to Year 6. They are:
- Form and Space
The outline below shows how these key concepts sit within our intent for the art and design curriculum, the ways in which we implement the subject and what difference great education in art and design will make.
Additionally, an example of a termly subject plan is shared which shows how we use questionning and a focus on vocabulary in order to make learning stick.
Finally, the endpoints we expect children to reach at each phase of their learning can be viewed below.
