Art & Design Technology

In Art children will explore a range of different techniques such as drawing, painting and sculpture, and will use a variety of materials, from pencil and paint to charcoal and clay, to create their own art pieces. In addition, during Key Stage 2, children will study the works of some great artists, architects and designers from history.

Design Technology includes cooking, with children finding out about a healthy diet and preparing simple meals. It also includes the more traditional elements in which children will design, make and evaluate products, whilst learning to use a range of tools and techniques for construction. There may also be some crossover with Science here as children incorporate levers, pulleys or electrical circuits into their designs for finished products.
