Art & Design
Art & Design is taught by a specialist Art teacher at Sacks Morasha. In accordance with the National Curriculum objectives children learn the techniques of drawing, painting, and sculpture as well as printing, collage, textiles and 3D work. Children are encouraged to improve and master their skills and techniques and lessons are planned to ensure inclusivity to all pupils.
Our curriculum has been tailored to allow the children to reflect and develop an awareness and respect for a diverse range of artists and an understanding of the social, moral and ethical implications that impact our world. Within lessons, children are given the opportunity both to work on their own and to collaborate with others, listening to other children’s ideas and treating these with respect. Children critically evaluate artists’ work, their own work and that of others. The children begin using sketchbooks from Year 1 for all their creative ideas and knowledge organisers are used for each topic to identify key information and to support the children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
Design Technology alternates with Art and Design each half term at Sacks Morasha. Guided by the Kapow Primary scheme, our Design and Technology curriculum aims to inspire our children to be innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle through ideation, creation, and evaluation. Knowledge organisers are used for each topic to help the children identify the key information and to support them in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
Our curriculum intends to build an awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage pupils to become resourceful, enterprising citizens who will have the skills to contribute to future design advancements.
