At Heather Primary School, we aim to provide an inspiring, practical art curriculum, which builds on children’s early creative experiences. Children study a range of famous artists and art movements, as well as sculpture and world art and will broaden their understanding of what good art is, learning how to use artists work to develop their own skills and techniques.
Work is recorded in sketch books, which follow the children through the school, showing development and progression of skills and help them to understand how they can organise their thinking.
Teachers offer meaningful advice and guide pupils, giving children time to act on it, involving them in the assessment process and help them to understand they can always improve themselves as learners.
